Thanks for the response, Lars. We will update the context soon.

I wonder whether the DNB will provide a JSON-LD context for the GND
ontology in the future. I think it would make sense to get this from the
source, optimally sync with the ontology as well as with the GND data.
Any chance you will provide this?
