I do not estimate losing any dev time on this. I am not suggesting we
map the present spec to LD. I am saying that when LD is required, all
that is necessary is to drop in the necessary bits and pieces as
specified in JSON-LD. All we need to do to enable this is drop our use
of "namespace" key from our current convention, and link to the
JSON-LD spec.

JSON-LD contexts are added to a JSON record. If someone adds context
information and you don't want it, just ignore it. Otherwise, access
the keys you do want as normal.
