mikedo has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/imsc:

== "green" is not quite green ==
A curiosity of named colors (inherited from SVG) is that “green”,  
unlike almost all other named colors, is only half-luminance. There is
 no named color for full luminance green (although some think it is 
“lightGreen” which is incorrect).  One must use the #rrggbb syntax to 
get full luminance green.

It matters in US closed captions since “green” in CTA-708 is full 

Example 12 uses green and it is in fact set by “#00FF00”. It might be 
worth a Note about this peculiarity that "green" is not quite green.  
Or consider elevating to TTML1/TTML2.
