-1 to removing the redefinition. We've just gone through a perma-thread
where people couldn't agree on what the document being linked to states.
Multiple people have stated it was a draft of an unfinished idea. The
document has spelling/grammar errors. It's not even a W3C Note.

I don't think TimBL's document helps clarify what Linked Data is and
isn't. We went through months of debate to come up with this section
with multiple people from the RDF WG agreeing to the text in the current
document after extended argumentation from both sides.

-1 to changing the section with the text provided by David. I do agree
with David's principle of underscoring the messaging that JSON-LD can be
used to losslessly serialize the RDF data model... but I feel like the
spec text already states that both informatively and normatively.
