No, the structured data should be generated the same time as the content.

It's just if it resides in a single script node in the head that can end 
up being quite large, there's no need to include that node when the 
client has no use for it.

Right now, I only send it if the client is an honest bot. But there may 
be some browser add-ons that make use of it, so they should be able to 
announce they want it and get it.
