You might want to watch work by Ruben Verborgh, et al, on Linked Data Fragments 
for an alternative approach...

And yet we have JSON-LD which can map JSON structures to a graph.  My own work 
(-in-progress) is using JSON as a basic implementation structure, but aiming to 
have the data flexibility of a graph structure.  I'm not aiming for scale, but 
if JSON can be scaled then I expect what I'm developing could use similar 
technology if needed.
