First of all, thanks Thomas for saying this early. My position is that I am
agnostic on which JSON format is standardised through the WG because I think
they solve different problems to one another. They both have valid use
cases, just quite separate ones.

I joined the WG to edit the JSON document because the WG had decided they
wanted to base it on the Talis spec which I had a lot of familiarity with.
I'm happy to proceed as the WG directs but it's worth saying early that I
don't think I would be a good editor for a JSON-LD based spec.
