   Bad news: At the very least, the scheme needs to be revised for global
   uniqueness.

Given that btv: addresses just this very issue very thoroughly, what about
just dropping it from tv:?

   We could make a note in the draft of the legacy usage of "tv:abc", but
   explain that it should not be used going forward because of collision with
   the callsign namespace and the problem of the same identifiers being used by
   different broadcasters in different geographical regions.

This is reasonable.
