I presume you are referring to Example 4, the only JWT (actually, just a
signed JSON) example in the doc.   Not having done much with JWTs, I
generated the signature using this site:  http://jwtbuilder.jamiekurtz.com/
I am happy to receive PRs with a better signed JSON structure, including a
JWT if appropriate.

 The JSON and JSON-LD example signatures are still completely bogus -- I
plan to work on the -LD ones on Thursday and Friday, unless some kind soul
volunteers new ones.  The JSON signatures will likely still remain bogus.
