I do not understand what you mean. What do you mean by "multi stakeholder RDF Syntax" that seems to characterize JSON-LD as opposed to Turtle or RDF/XML? This is the first time I meet this type of expression with regards to RDF syntaxes. In view, JSON-LD is not fundamentally different from Turtle or RDF/XML. 

I suspect you are referring to the problems that arise with the context file, although I am not sure why that is a "multi stakeholder syntax" - but we have already made a change on the charter by making it explicit that the WG will deal with the specific context issue separately, see

https://w3c.github.io/lds-wg-charter/#ig-other-deliverables <https://w3c.github.io/lds-wg-charter/#ig-other-deliverables>


P.S. We can forget about GRDDL, which I would not call a a syntax.
