Hi Ian,

thanks for clarifying this - I guess because WebSRT is specified inside
HTML5 in WHATWG I assumed it was only open for WebSRT, and because the
rendering is also only specified based on WebSRT features, that confirmed
that assumption. I have indeed sent much feedback on WHATWG, some of which
are certain to be misunderstandings that need clarification. Looking forward
to moving it along!
