That's a fair comment.  I guess I'm trying to work out how aligned WebBox
and Linked Data are likely to be, moving forward for things like HTTP
GET/PUT/POST/DELETE/PATCH.  Sort of interested in a heads up on the
direction you are currently thinking of taking things architecturally.

I think LDP will be compatible with JSON-LD but sets the baseline at turtle.

There's a few JSON candidates for linked data right now, tho JSON-LD has
the most work being done.   Tho one is much the same as another so long as
you add a content type you are fine.
