Hi Pierre,

s/A presented region is a region that satisfies all of the following
conditions are true:/A presented region is a region that satisfies all of
the following conditions:

Then this is acceptable to me to close Issue-313, as discussed.

However I note that we haven't resolved whether there is any substantive
difference between 'presented region' in IMSC 1 and 'temporally active
region' in TTML 1 SE. If they are synonymous and as a result of Issue-314
we add an erratum to TTML 1 SE to define "temporally active region" then
we should modify IMSC 1 to use that term in place of "presented region".

Also, I note from 2.3 in [1] that it is both a requirement to define
terms and a good practice ("Good Practice 9" also in [1]) to consolidate
the definitions in a glossary section. I will raise a separate issue that
IMSC 1 needs to meet the requirements of this document and as far as
possible also the good practices.

Kind regards,
