Lower Face Controls and Lip Ribbon

These two extra joints are going to hold the skinning for the sides of the lower lip ribbon. Previously I had it so the original mouth corner joints were had the skinning for both upper and lower lip ribbon corners; as a result, even when I parented all my lower lip controls to the jaw, the corners got stuck at the top and it looked ugly.
Here's how the skinning looks now that each lip has a separate set of joints for skinning:
