Is your point that we did not agree as a group to register the update with IANA?  I agree, but I also did not say that to MPEG (although I personally think we should).

I'm not against updating the IANA registration if that's useful but we haven't decided to do that. If we do, then clearly the relevant part of the TTML 2 spec would need updating to match. If we don't, then there may be no changes resulting, in TTML2.
