That is not clear to me - I'll flag this a important WG item (and what 
the WG itself can do to help).

Is the intention to have a formal definition of JSON-LD? (not EBNF - 
that's just the syntax part).  It does help the descriptive part as well 
- it can be looser, and concentrate on the overall concept which is the 
intended style?
