Good point, Kingsley.

I'm in favor of adding JSON-LD, but not as a MUST. The reason why we
decided to only mandate Turtle was to reduce the number of serialization
formats people must support. No one stops you from offering several other
formats, as long as you at least support Turtle.

Anyway, I'm definitely in favor of adding at least some JSON-LD examples,
next to Turtle. :)
