Thanks for the info Dan!

Not meaning to be pedantic here, but while the vast majority of data
islands are indeed of type application/ld+json, there's nothing that I know
if that prevents you from having another content type in the script tag:


Here is an example used by timbl which uses the (perhaps outdated)
application/xml content type

I could imagine other content types being used too, e.g. text/turtle or
simpey application/json

I'm collecting links around standardization of this pattern, so please pass
any on if you have any.  But perhaps it's so simple that, that would be
over kill
