Updated proposal to close Issue-192

Updated proposal addresses EBU requirements for display of European content in the US and the concerns raised about 16-9 display formats.

Change from: At most 32 characters must be present in any displayed text line.
Change to: No more than 38 characters MUST be present in any displayed text line where the aspect ratio of the root container is 4:3 and no more than 42 characters MUST be present for 16:9.

Also add these 2 new requirements:
The total character limit for displayed text should be 152 where the aspect ratio of the root container is 4:3.
The total character limit for displayed text should be 168 where the aspect ratio of the root container is 16:9.

Add a note following the requirements:
These requirements accommodate European content that is to be displayed in the US.

Thanks.

I think this is not a general solution since it does not address other display aspect ratios, such as 21:9, which is becoming more common, and it is silent on every other aspect ratio.

Also, with the change to SHOULD, this allows unlimited characters/line on 4:3, which I don't think was intended.

An informative note should be added to state that the cellResolution needs to set accordingly since the initial TTML attribute value force 32x15 no matter what the display aspect ratio is.

This needs further discussion, think.
