so what if developers use JSON-LD libraries that provide no control 
over producing the specific "shape" required by the spec? i have too 
little knowledge of JSON-LD libraries to know about this. but i do 
know that this is a real problem in an identical area where there were
 specs that required certain forms of XML serialization, only to later
 discover that when using standard XML software (which more often than
 not does not provide full control over all details of serialization),
 for some developers it was simply impossibly to satisfy this 
additional constraint on top of standard XML. like i said, i am not 
sure this is an issue here, but it may be something to keep in mind 
and something that has caused many real problems in earlier 
occurrences of the same "let's constrain the standard to make client 
development easier" approach. postel's law still is something to keep 
in mind for open systems.
