Disappointingly, it seems like we don't actually disagree on much. I'm guessing that the set of applications where you would choose to use GRPC is much larger than mine, and the set of applications where I would choose to use HTTP+JSON is much larger than yours, but we would both acknowledge that both sets are important.
OpenAPI is just another RPC IDL in my eyes, but since its most common use is just documentation, it doesn't bother me as much. JSON-LD has a different set of goals and seems to me part of a different discussion.
My other point is that you need the same qualities-of-service—service discovery, client-side load balancing, well-factored monitoring, context propagation—for HTTP+JSON that you need for RCP/Messaging. Maybe we could work together on a "G+HTTP+JSON" to provide that :) It would have to be IDL-free.
