I don't think there is a real concern here. We wanted to essentially reference/harmonize with the current FCC requirement, which no longer talks about or allows the sale of analog TV's.
So the thought was that this is now redundant. However I don't think anyone has any issue with a prohibition against Federal Gov using pre-1993 TV's without caption playback capability.

I'm not sure I understand the concern from industry. If new analog products
are not being made or sold, then the provision would not affect industry.
So what was the concern of industry on including it? Can you help me?
