But the abstract refers to translations as well. I wonder if
"A Language Tag Extension 'Trans'"
would be acceptable - "Trans" is cryptic, but more suggestive than "T".

Or, as the abstract says "transformed content, including content that 
has been transliterated, transcribed, or translated, or in some other 
way influenced by the source", what about

"A Language Tag Extension for Transformations"

(perhaps with the word "Text" before "Transformations")?

Actually the pages banners now have "BCP 47 Transform Extension"...
