Well, this JSON-SD/JSON-LD split is clearly confusing people. It is a 
sign that we're on the wrong path.

Here was the intent:

1. Both JSON-SD/CD/LSD and JSON-LD allows one to have both in-band and
    out-of-band @context.
2. Both solutions allow you to express Linked Data.
3. If you use an unlabeled node, you have a JSON-SD document.
4. If you use IRI identifiers for all of your nodes, you have a JSON-LD
