JSON-LD is closer in intent to RDFa - in this case, it adds (makes 
explicit) semantics of a JSON document while retaining the JSON 
document.  Like RDFa, you can encode a graph in JSON-LD but there are 
compromises - the data models are not the same so there is additional 
line noise. If your purpose is to transfer RDF from A to B, you will be 
better off using Turtle.
