The entity relationships are MUCH easier to understand via TURTLE 
notation. Other notations serve specific user profiles. Here's the user 
profile breakdown as I see it:

[1] Turtle -- everyone (i.e, anyone literate person that understand 
natural language sentences and the role they play re., information 
encoding and decoding)
[2] JSON-LD -- Web Programmer that prefers JSON based structured data 
[3] HTML+Mircodata -- Web Master focused on HTML
[4] HTML+RDFa -- No real idea as to the profile here (maybe: Semantic 
Web Web master )
[5] RDF/XML -- aimed at XML programmers (but only confused them and the 
rest of the world about RDF).

It would be nice if Schema.org accommodated both TURTLE and JSON-LD, 
alongside Microdata and RDFa.

I'm not sure whether schema.org wants to go down that route, but I think even for people that have no idea about how JSON-LD works (or even what it is), it is much easier to skim and understand. So perhaps that easiest tweak would be to show the JSON-LD tab by default!?
