ISSUE-315: Maximum number of regions should be a processor constraint

Maximum number of regions should be a processor constraint

Maximum number of regions should be a processor constraint

State:
OPEN
Product:
TTML IMSC 2.0
Raised by:
Nigel Megitt
Opened on:
2014-05-21
Description:
The requirement in §4.6.3 [1] to limit the number of presented regions in a given intermediate synchronic document should be expressed as a minimal processing constraint rather than a maximal document constraint in order not to limit future expansion. Example wording:

Presentation processors SHALL be able to present 4 or more regions within any given intermediate synchronic document.


This would permit sub-profiling of IMSC in other environments such that more than 4 regions are permitted within an intermediate synchronic document if a use case for that should arise, while still ensuring that all documents authored to meet the maximum of 4 regions constraint can be successfully processed.

This may require a processor profile to be created for IMSC1, as noted as a possibility in ISSUE-307.

Related notes:

document (content) and processor constraints should be separated here, and they can be distinct numbers; e.g., one could define a content profile that limits the number of regions expressed in any given ISD, while at the same time defining a processor profile that requires support for a minimum number of regions in an ISD, and the numbers could be different;

I've added a suggested feature designator for this along with those for the HRM in Issue-319.

This issue is non-blocking on the CR publication. However it is dependent on defining the processor profile, which is not done in IMSC 1 and not available in combination with the content profile in TTML1. Deferring this issue to IMSC 2.
