Abstract

Developers that embed structured data in their Web pages can choose
among a number of languages such as RDFa, Microformats and Microdata.
Each of these structured data languages, while incompatible at the
syntax level, can be easily mapped to RDF. JSON has proven to be a
highly useful object serialization and messaging replacement for SOAP.
In an attempt to harmonize the representation of Link Data in JSON, this
specification outlines a common JSON representation format for Linked
Data that can be used to represent objects specified via RDFa,
Microformats and Microdata.
----------

There is currently some discussion going on in the RDFa Community on
this markup mechanism (start of thread):

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdfa/2010May/0018.html

A great amount of effort was made to ensure that the markup mechanism
was compatible with all existing adopted or REC-track structured data
markup mechanisms - RDFa, Microformats and Microdata.

Would this WG be amenable to publishing this spec as a FPWD (after about
another month or two of work on it)? It deals with representing Web-wide
objects between User Agents and Web Services. It is geared as a
standards-based replacement of SOAP... REST + JSON-LD.

Thoughts?
