So we are back to the question of whether: JSON-LD is about a solution 
for those who are happy with RDF? If it is, then what's wrong with the 
existing RDF/JSON syntax from Talis?

We can't escape the fundamental questions:

1. what is JSON-LD?
2. why is it important?
3. who is it aimed at?
4. how will the target audience use it?
