Presumably the useful example intended was that by putting stuff in
JSON we can really easily do the things like build search / facet /
graph UIs on the web. Of course, we could do RDF in JSON too, so it is
definitely not a replacement for RDF. BibJSON is just the convention
of representing bibliographic metadata in JSON, which is useful.
