Support for JSON-LD in onebox

Continuing the discussion from Rich link previews with Onebox:

@Anatolia made a request for a richer onebox for Imdb that includes ratings. I think it is a great request but there is a bunch of missing info in the standard embedding meta tags.

On deeper analysis it looks like imdb supports:

In my opinion it is one of the finest depictions of the holocaust. This movie came close to Schindlers list in depicting the horrors of Holocaust. Brody puts in a marvelous and utterly touching performance. The story depicts the emotional and cultural breakdown of persecuted Jewish community as Nazi policy tightens around them. Excellent acting by Brody.",

I wonder if we should teach onebox to support JSON LD for cases like this?
