How about:
-HTML5 video services profile
-HTML5 temporal media services profile
-HTML5 rich media services profile

There is an inherent problem with tacking any legacy related wording in the title because it limits the meaning, even if the actual profile document manages to address the broader topic. If you call this a "Video Services Profile" of any sort, it would seem sensible to also have an "Audio Services Profile" and a "Rich Media" or "Multimedia Services Profile" too. Calling it something like "Temporal Media Services Profile" puts the emphasis on the time aspect, which is true for video and audio, interactive with various media and programmatic elements, etc. A sub title could expand to say that the profile includes video (e.g. TV and movies,) audio (e.g. radio, audiobooks,) streaming and/or on-demand temporal content of all types, separately or combined with other IP based interactive and presentational applications, or the like. A section could address specifically legacy TV and state of the art IPTV functionality if desired.

Or, the profile could be very forward looking and have appendices which list the guidelines that apply to different scenarios, e.g. TV service, radio service, converged multimedia services, etc.

Thanks!

I don't have strong opinions on the title but I would note the following:
- A title should be short ( the subtitle explains a bit more what we are  
doing).
- I've tried to use the word "TV services" in the subtitle that is  
hopefully a bit less confusing (or maybe not?). I have defined this term as

"For the purposes of this document a TV service is a commercial video  
service that may include elements of interactivity and that provides a  
coherent user experience.

- while this profile is html5 based this is not only about html5. I'm not  
against highlighting the HTML5 centric approach but I wouldn't call this  
"an html5 profile".

So in short: I'm fine with your comments but I cannot come up with a  
better title/subtitle. Suggestions are welcome.
