Please write conformance words in ALL CAPITALS, like "SHOULD", "MUST", 
etc., so that they still show up appropriately when passages are copied 
and pasted, rather than assuming that the text will only be viewed in a 
browser that renders those words using a "small capitals" font.  It is 
important to be able to copy and paste passages into plain text email, 
such as this message, and have those words stand out appropriately.  For 
example, notice how the word "should" does NOT appear in caps when 
copied from the spec and pasted below, even though many browsers will 
render it in small caps:

   "IRIs used within a JSON-LD graph should return . . . "
