As per my last comment, we need to get the definitions of the following 

1. EAV/CR -- Entity Attribute Value plus Classes & Relationships 
(relationship semantics are implicit and thereby susceptible to ambiguity)
2. RDF  -- EAV/CR with the addition of explicit entity relationship 
semantics + URIs as entity denotation mechanism
3. Linked Data -- RDF or EAV/CR + explicit entity relationship semantics 
+ de-referencable URIs as entity denotation mechanism
4. JSON-LD -- a JSON based data representation and serialization format 
for  Linked Data.

We have to be brave enough to loosely couple RDF and Linked Data. 
There's nothing to lose and everything to gain :-)
