That's rather my point. The example I posted (which was a quote from the
RDFj wiki page on Google Code) *cannot* be represented in JSON because
JSON doesn't have a data type equivalent to Javascript's first-class
function objects.

Thus RDFj is not JSON - it's Javascript. (Or rather, it uses a format
that's a subset of Javascript but a superset of JSON.)
