Right -- It is temporal.  And yes, I agree with you too.
Though it doesn't have to be an exact clock --- it is permitted to
temporally vary (e.g. word transmission of captioning / transcription,
meaning <rtt/> is timed with the bursts from a transcription engine).   I
do give some coverage of that later in the specification.
