Kingsley, during the JSON-LD call today we specifically wanted to solicit your feedback on if our proposed fix in PR #603 [1] satisfies your requirements as stated in issue #488 [2].

A particular use case is highlighted in the syntax document:

  "@context": {
    "@base": "http://example/document",
    "@vocab": ""
  "@id": "http://example.org/places#BrewEats",
  "@type": "#Restaurant",
  "#name": "Brew Eats"

The “@vocab”: “” has the effect of using the current document base (either location, or set via @base) to create property IRIs. This would expand to the following:

  "@id": "http://example.org/places#BrewEats",
  "@type": ["http://example/document#Restaurant"],
  "http://example/document#name": [{"@value": "Brew Eats"}]

You can find formatted versions of the syntax [3] and API [4] documents. Kindly respond to indicate if the proposed text satisfies your requirements.

Gregg Kellogg
