Note the @context in the compacted form. This is what I meant by an in-band
schema. I was specifically responding to Glenn:

I was under the impression that the difference between JSON-SD and JSON-LD
is that JSON-SD + out-of-band schema could very well create JSON-LD. I may
be misinterpreting the intent of JSON-SD though :)
