Speaking as the *Talis* rep (not as chair):

Talis uses triple-based JSON and has no opinion positively or negatively regarding standardization at this time.  We see benefit to an object-oriented JSON syntax for some kinds of RDF data and would support standardization of that iff the WG comes up with something that makes sense.  So far we aren't there yet.
