@_paulofreitas_twitter I think for now there is no standardized way to do so. There were multiple ideas/initiatives to make in-document addressing a standard. But as far as I know it hasn't been finished yet. On other hand, on the implementation level (e.g. Python) we can find a workaround for your specific use case. The tools itself support such kind of addressing e.g. see tabulator - https://github.com/frictionlessdata/tabulator-py#formats
@michaelamadi I would suggest to sync with @rufuspollock on making your proposal an official pattern (https://github.com/frictionlessdata/specs/issues/290#issuecomment-398226697)

@_paulofreitas_twitter the way we've done this in DataHub.io stuff is to either use multiple resources one for each sheet or nest stuff under a given resource - so you sort have a subset of resoruces representing each sheet underneath the main excel sheet.

Re JSON stuff: it is is tabular that approach you suggested is good - otherwise you could just use json schema
