I'd like to note that if we were able to provide scope for other
RDF Serialization Formats without undue negative impacts; we might reduce
pain-points (whilst potentially introducing others).

Think mandatory json-ld optional Turtle, etc. --> might be another way of
doing it.

serialization seems a bit like religion at times.  we all know something
about it from how we live or where we grew-up, but it's unfair to force
others to believe in the way we see the world if unnecessary to do so...
 often different books say similar things in different ways in anycase..
