Martin J. Dürst <duerst at it.aoyama.ac.jp> suggested:

> BCP 47 Extension T - Language Tagging of Transformed Content

In fact, this title is better enough than the original "Language Tag 
Content Transforms" that I'd also like to suggest changing the 
Description field in the BCP 47 Registration Form (Section 2.4) from 
"Specifying Content Transforms" to "Transformed Content."

I suggest omitting the gerund "Specifying" for parallelism with the 'u' 
extension ("Unicode Locale"), which seems to be an important goal.

"Transform" may be a commonly understood noun in the CLDR world, but I 
think we established here that the extension indicates content that has 
been transformed via some mechanism, not the mechanism itself.
