Sorry about that - I meant to send this e-mail to the RDF WG. I'm going
to have to be more careful about mailing list address auto-complete
since there is only a one letter difference between us and the RDF WG.

That said, bergie's implementation is the second one that I know of that
can convert from RDFa -> JSON-LD. We also do this at our company for the
PaySwarm[1] stuff. Specifically, the vocabularies[2] and APIs dealing
with the product descriptions (assets), offers for sale (listings), and
licenses are all expressed in RDFa on the web, stored in a graph
database and sent/received from the Semantic Web Services via JSON-LD.

I expect that there are big gaps in the implementations since we don't
have a good test suite for JSON-LD yet... but we hope to get a test
suite up in the next 3-4 months.

That said - there may be a nice pairing between RDFa (for publishing)
and JSON-LD (for APIs).
