multiRowAlign test applies style via region

TTML 1.0 Test Suite
Raised by:
Nigel Megitt
Opened on:
The multiRowAlign test at applies the ebutts:multiRowAlign attribute directly onto a region, however the semantics of that attribute allow it only to be applied using a style element.

I suggest applying it using a style element and reference, for example:

<region xml:id="area1" tts:origin="20% 70%" tts:extent="60% 20%" tts:backgroundColor="green" tts:displayAlign="center" tts:color="white"/>
<region xml:id="area2" tts:origin="20% 10%" tts:extent="60% 20%" tts:backgroundColor="black" tts:displayAlign="center" tts:color="white"/>
<style xml:id="startEnd" tts:textAlign="start" ebutts:multiRowAlign="end"/>
<style xml:id="centerStart" tts:textAlign="center" ebutts:multiRowAlign="start"/>
<p region="area1" style="startEnd" begin="1s" end="9s">
Beware the Jabberwock, my son!<br/>The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
<p region="area2" style="centerStart" begin="1s" end="9s">
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun<br/>The frumious Bandersnatch!

Related notes:

Implemented as suggested in the description.

NOTE: In order for the test to be also compatible with EBU-TT-D, which is a subset of IMSC1 and forbids inline styling on content elements.
