ISSUE-328 (John Birch): ittm:altText should be in TT namespace in TTML 2.0 [TTML2]

http://www.w3.org/AudioVideo/TT/tracker/issues/328

Raised by: John Birch
On product: TTML2

NOTE: This issue assumes that smpte:backgroundImage is also promoted to a TTML 2.0 namespace element or equivalent functionality (See ISSUE 238).

At present in IMSC, the smpte:backgroundImage element is used in a document conforming to the image profile as a child element of a containing div. However the *text equivalent* supported by the ittm:altText element must be placed as a child of a metadata element that is itself a child of that div. 

This position of the ittm:altText under a metadata child contradicts the 'equivalence' of the two elements and diminishes the value of the altText tag and unnecessarily increases the verbosity of the document.

Subject to ISSUE 238, it is suggested that ittm:altText should be deprecated in favour of a native ttml element that is placed at the *same document level* as any new TTML 2.0 background image element.
