Firstly, well done for going the extra mile and producing structured data
on the web

Typically, if I am primarily interested in JSON-LD data, there is a
mechanism in web architecture which allows me to specify this.

I would use an accept header such as

Accept: application/ld+json

In this way, machines can receive machine readable data, and humans can
receive human readable.
