But clarity needs to be assessed in the eyes of the *readers* -- not the 
authors.  Obviously it is *not* clear to readers, as you've heard 
substantially similar comments on this point from both Sven and from me. 
  Telling readers that they "will find JSON-LD of interest" is nowhere 
near as clear as explicitly saying that "JSON-LD is a concrete syntax of 
RDF" or "JSON-LD is a serialization format for RDF".
