No, it's invalid because it's invalid to have more than one -t-
extension in the same tag.  But the -t- description could be extended to
allow pi-Latn-t-pi-Sinh-t0-pra, or something of the sort.  What's banned
in -t- is language tags containing -i- (all of which are grandfathered),
because that looks like the -t- extension ends and a new -i- extension
(not defined) starts.
