The current text is correct since for smpte time base with continuous
marker mode, time expressions are in fact equivalent to offset based
timing, where the start of the implicit syncbase for tt:tt is 00:00:00.0.
However, given the following bullet in 10.4 (about smpte discontinuous
begin equivalent to marker values), I can see how one may   read 10.4 as
saying that smpte continuous mode does not entail marker values. The
intention is that smpte continuous be marker values that are equivalent to
offset based timing (due to satisfaction of continuity and monotonicity).
Perhaps breaking out smpte continuous into its own bullet would be the way
to better express this intention.
