+1 as well.

The reason I didn't move everything over to schema.org when I made the
changes in the JSON-LD 1.0 spec is because of this very reason. We need
to show folks that JSON-LD isn't a schema.org-only thing.

The schema.org vocab terms returning 404 has been an issue for around 18
months now, so the argument that they're not being responsive to
critical vocabulary publication issues also resonates with me.

Putting schema.org stuff into the JSON-LD 1.0 spec is mostly a marketing
move. This was done so folks understand that this stuff works with
schema.org. Web developers are really excited about it because of the
enhanced search results, but I still have a number of reservations about
the one-vocab-to-rule-them-all approach. I share most of Dave Lehn's
concerns, so I don't think we should remove other non-schema.org
examples to show a good balance of vocabulary mixing with JSON-LD.
