The word "translation" occurs once and the word "translated" occurs three times in the document and in no case is it specified how one would use the -t- tag for translation.

Transliteration and transcription, yes. I recommend (VERY STRONGLY) that the terms "translated" and "translation" be deleted from the RFC as that is a whole nother ball of wax entirely.
