Right, I was imagining (for JDIL) wrapping GeoJSON in something like
{
     "@namespaces": {
         "geojson": "http://namespace.geojson.org/1.0/"
     },
     "@type": "geojson:FeatureCollection",
     "geojson:object": object
}

where object is a GeoJSON FeatureCollection object as described in our spec.

This would mean nothing at all for the GeoJSON spec.  Additional members 
could be added throughout the GeoJSON object, giving you additional 
@type or @id values.

Would this do the trick?  To be clear, I'm talking about doing nothing 
to the spec - only encouraging folks to wrap GeoJSON in something like 
the above if they want to integrate data JDIL style.
