Re: edge attributes in JSON-LD

This is an example of using bnode properties to define a property graph I worked up before:

{"@id": "", "@type": "rdf:BoundDataset"},
{"@id": "v1", "name": "joe", "age": 27, "_:created": "v3", "_:knows": "v2"},
{"@id": "v2", "name": "fred", "age": 29},
{"@id": "v3", "name": "code", "lang": "javascript"},
{"@id": "_:created", "rdfs:subPropertyOf": "created", "weight": 0.4}
{"@id": "_:knows", "rdfs:subPropertyOf": "knows", "weight": 0.5}
