That sounds just like RDF. JSON-LD is an RDF syntax; if you want
"triples" like "<subject> <predicate> <object>" then you simply use the
JSON-LD toRDF API to convert any JSON-LD to that format. Also, the
Social Web Working Group at W3C is working on Activity Streams and they
use JSON-LD. It seems there may be some reinventing of existing or
ongoing standards work at W3C going on here.
