Yeah, that's a "trick" to reduce the number of HTTP round-trips if you also need to access information about the vocabulary itself.
In fact, the context URL redirects to the vocabulary, so perhaps the examples should be updated to use http://www.w3.org/ns/hydra directly.

Exactly. Remote JSON-LD contexts are nothing else than a JSON-LD document with an @context. A processor will ignore the rest of the document.
