+  <dd>The same as the <code>application/json</code> MIME media type.</dd>
+  <dt>Security considerations:</dt>
+  <dd>Since JSON-LD is intended to be a pure data exchange format for
+    directed graphs, the serialization SHOULD NOT be passed through a
+    code execution mechanism such as JavaScript's <code>eval()</code>
+    function. It is RECOMMENDED that a conforming parser does not attempt to
+    directly evaluate the JSON-LD serialization and instead purely parse the
+    input into a language-native data structure. </dd>

+  <dd>The <a href="http://json-ld/spec/latest/">JSON-LD</a> specification.</dd>
+  <dt>Applications that use this media type:</dt>
+  <dd>Any programming environment that requires the exchange of
+    directed graphs. Implementations of JSON-LD have been created for 
+    JavaScript, Python, Ruby, PHP and C++.
