Actually, it looks like Tim added the "language" and "format" keys when
changing it from a string literal to an object. The string literal won't
work with any of these variants as it has to be moved into an object to

an `id` (for blank nodes)

or `type`

So, they can be left out, but once it's an object, it does feel a bit silly
not to take advantage of the space. :)

This does also clarify that any of these objects mean string literals won't
work with multiple bodies serving different roles / motivations.

Thanks for the work on simplifying these, Ivan!
I am calling it a day now (it is Friday evening) but I can try to do that
on Monday unless somebody beats me beforehand…
