Pat, we made an attempt to define it loosely here, see "Section 1:
Introduction"

http://json-ld.org/spec/latest/json-ld-syntax/

We also attempted to formalize the definition here, which resulted in a
fairly vocal backlash (many criticized us for overstepping our bounds in
the JSON-LD spec):

http://json-ld.org/spec/ED/json-ld-syntax/20120830/#linked-data

It's certainly not complete and is debatable, but does that help a little?
