> Soo... is there any reason to adopt a change suggested by this 
issue? I think not. I would actually support the idea brought up just 
now by Erik wherein the spec sticks to pure JSON with some additional 
text about how to augment it for JSON-LD / RDF world (essentially, 
slap the context on it). I would love it if we recommended that anyone
 producing JSON-LD stick to the recommended context to make interop 
easier.

This could also require (which I think would be a good idea) that the 
protocol would also return a link header to the appropriate `@context`
 following the [relevant section of the 
JSON-LD](http://www.w3.org/TR/json-ld/#interpreting-json-as-json-ld) 
spec. It is not a major addition to the protocol, the extra load on 
Annotation Servers is minimal, but purely JSON clients would not have 
to actively disregard the `@context` property from the returned data 
(as they would have to do now).
