The definition of "Linked Data" does not say that a linked data graph is 
an RDF graph.  I think it is important to state explicitly that a linked 
data graph is an RDF graph.  Otherwise JSON-LD would be a competitor to 
RDF (since both are used to represent directed graphs) but without being 
grounded on RDF semantics.  Appendix B suggests that JSON-LD is intended 
to be an RDF format, but this should be stated explicitly in the definition.

Thanks,
David
