Yes... but that is unrelated to having TTML support in the browser.
What TTML in the browser means is that there is a specification for
TTMLCue() (such that cues get exposed to the browser and a JS
interface is available), and that a browser has decided to parse TTML
files int a TextTrack and create TTMLCues from that file. The first
half is part of the charter. The second half requires browsers to
decide to implement TTML support. IE10 is the only browser this far
that has decided to implement TTML file parsing, but it has not
implemented a JS API for TTML content.

HTH.
