And, in fact, the JSON you included would be completely compatible 
with using the context [once it includes iana and ldp] as the 
requirement for using particular keys comes from a profile, not the 
context itself.

The reason for requiring the particular shape of the JSON-LD is to 
enable regular JSON based clients to understand and process the 
content without requiring a JSON-LD, or worse full RDF, stack.  At the
 same time the great advantage of JSON-LD is that it *is* RDF 
underneath the covers so people wanting to do linked data can also 
make use of it at the same time without multiple representations.

So I'm :-1: to making the serialization form unrestricted as this 
makes client development harder. See also #51 regarding constraining 
HTTP level features at the protocol level.
