One aspect of broadcast subtitling requirements is multiple text alignments within a single displayed line... I.e left and right aligned text on the same 'displayed' line... While I realise this can be achieved using multiple overlapping regions with different alignment styles that's not an ideal solution...

Does a p element imply a crlf?

Subject: TextAlign002 and use of textAlign on span elements

I noticed that the test TextAlign002.xml is using textAlign on a span
      <p begin="0s" end="10s" tts:textAlign="right"><span tts:textAlign="left">This caption is on the left</span>.</p>

However, the spec indicates that textAlign can only be applied to p
elements (see table in section 8.2.19). Since the span element has the
width of the text it contains, textAlign would have no effect here

I suggest TextAlign should also be applicable to region, body, and div.
