Hello Omar,

The proposal supports development of the JSON-LD ecosystem, and I wrote "I would like to see work on the companion specification begin soon.”

Today Dave Longley and I had a productive discussion about how to organize the specifications so that they can build on one another. I expect
the next draft of the specification edited by Dave and Manu Sporny to reflect our conversation.
