Maybe :)

They don't, but the publishers that want to reach the audience that
wants RDF /could/ encode the information in a way that doesn't bother
Column A people, but also meets the needs of column B people. That is -
one solution is applicable to both Column A and Column B. That is, the
markup looks like this to both columns:

{
   "#": { ... MAPPINGS ... }
   "name": "Sandro Hawke"
}

Column A people would just ignore the '#' key. Column B people could use
the '#' key to get more out of the data.

Yes, it can be, you don't need a library to use this:

{
   "#": { ... MAPPINGS ... }
   "name": "Sandro Hawke"
}

Our mental model on the row/column diagram seems to be different, but I
haven't quite figured out how.

I don't think the yellow box would take over the world... but then
again, my understanding of the yellow box may not be the same as yours.

Agreed.
