I spent the day today thoroughly vetting and updating the JSON-LD Syntax
specification to reflect the latest thinking by this community group on
the JSON-LD markup language.

The following actions were taken as a result:

* Completely de-coupled the JSON-LD Syntax document from the JSON-LD
   API and normalization documents.
* Thorough check on all spelling, grammar and links.
* Terminology changes
   * Web Vocabulary -> vocabulary
   * literal -> value
   * datatype -> type
   * plain literal -> string value
   * typed literal -> typed value
   * chaining -> embedding
* More detailed explanation of some of the JSON-LD concepts.
* Minor technical corrections to match teleconference/mailing list
* Processed all 45 closed bugs and ensured that there were links to a
   timestamped specification section demonstrating that the resolutions
   were not only adopted by the group, but they resulted in a
   specification change.

The latest time-stamped specification can be found here:


A diff-marked copy from the previous version can be found here:


This is the type of editorial review we go through before heading into
Last Call at W3C... so, the document is in /very/ good shape.

The only glaring issues that remain are the ones surrounding @list:


We're very, very close to feature freeze for the JSON-LD Syntax.
