Thanks Markus and Gregg. I'll try Gregg's idea of using blank nodes.

I think following a  'convention' might also help in terms of interpreting the JSON-LD data for property graphs:

1.            Use blank nodes exclusively for representing edges that have attributes
2.            By convention use the sub-property named 'To' in the blank node to point to the target node
3.            Do not use in-line definition for target nodes (i.e., nesting)

Any comment?

Note: The Feature at Risk #3 in the latest spec says: "the Working Group may decide to disallow blank node properties in JSON-LD". Could this cause problem?
