So just using a IRI relative to the retrieved document isn't an alternative
for you? Neither is using a prefix that you set to you @base address?

In this case that could be:

{
   "friend":  {
       "id": "/foobar#id",    // or, e.g., "base:foobar#id"
   }
}

Did you think about the case where @base is modified in an external context
and how difficult it would be to debug such as case?

I can't see what kind of functionality a @suffix element would allow.. Could
you elaborate?

Same here.. what kind of functionality does this enable? I can see some use
cases where URI templates are needed but that can be described without
having explicit support by JSON-LD as well IMO.
