It sounds like folks really mean "Transformed Content".

(Please don't assume that I agree with putting all these
things into "T".  I think language tagging should be about
what a representation *is*, not about its provenance.
The latter can clearly be useful information, but I think
it's beyond the scope of what can reasonably be accommodated
in a language tag - it rapidly leads to things like the
ideolect tagging advocated long ago by a vociferous dissenter
on this list.)
