Hi Markus,

Sorry I didn't see the more recent version.  I've now looked at this 
version:
https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/json-ld/raw-file/default/spec/latest/json-ld-syntax/index.html
and I see that there is a section C "Relationship to RDF".

Consequently I hereby revoke my comment below.  I will send a separate 
message with a different comment.

Thanks,
David
