I think one of the criteria we will have to use is that if I look at an example and it is not immediately clear what a feature really does, then this is a candidate for removal. I guess criteria, mainly in view of the audience of JSON-LD, is valid, though, I admit, fuzzy. 

Well, I looked at both [2] and [3] and none of these passed this test:-( Plus I do not see the real necessity to add features to generate those particular output. Ie, at this moment, I would not be in favour of adding any of those two things into JSON-LD. Feature freeze...:-)
