So we have suggested it works/appears for 3 or even 5 cones editors only. Also we can use Key-Value pairs "just like Alt names", not abusing alt names.

In fact, in Nuance it looks like this:
b a k w *r d z -> backwards
Here is the Nuance Grammar Developer's Guide (PDF), page 85.
A separate TTS field would encourage people to put there something. On the other hand, a Key-Value pairs would allow to fix TTS/shields etc for experienced editors only. And we know, the majority of the segments do not need any TTS correction or shields at all.
