Hi Richard,

I agree, needs written up in a usecases for json wiki page, if you can't 
wait that long then do see the thread which started here:

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-wg/2011Feb/0072.html

What you mention is "RDF in JSON", something which nobody seems that 
keen to do, although I still maintain we need both!

Best,

Nathan
