I applaud your effort to make the intent more clear.
However, "Positive Train Control" as a macro concept and major systems
implementation seems to be so highly entrenched in the rail industry
and its attendant public funding arenas. Thus I fear you are going to
either get industry push-back or miss funding opportunities due to the
lack of the hot buzz-word label.
How about something like: Amendment: Physical Layer for Positive
Train Control (PTC) of Rail Communications
(or if "for" is too strong, switch in "in support of")
Just a suggestion.

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that I will submitting a PAR
title change request for consideration in Orlando for 802.15.4p.
It is currently titled: Part 15.4:
Low-Rate Wireless Personal Area Networks (LR-WPANs) Amendment: Positive
Train Control (PTC) System Physical Layer
While this had some historical relevance, it is felt that
terminology "Positive Train Control" does not clearly speak to
the intent and purpose of the amendment. Since we are not far from
starting Working Group letter ballot, we thought now is as good a time
any to get this cleaned this up.
The proposed revision is: Part 15.4: Low-Rate Wireless Personal
Networks (LR-WPANs) Amendment: Physical Layer for Rail Communications
