You're kind of rephrasing the question: what *are* the goals here? Is
JSON-LD a RDF serialization, or a convention for representing graphs in
JSON, or something else? If it's strictly an RDF serialization, then I
probably don't care about it, but I thought the whole point of "JSON-LD" as
a new effort distinct from the RDF/JSON working group was to reopen
precisely this question, so that it might be answered in a way that would
lead to significantly simpler and more accessible spec...
