This has huge potential -- congratulations on such a clear and simple

I particularly like the idea of the metadata kind attribute and the
ability in WebSRT to include arbitrary metadata.

>> The addCueRange() API has been removed and replaced with a feature
based on the subtitle mechanism. <<
I'm not sure what this means -- are you referring to timed track cues?

Couple of minor queries:
* 'time track' is referred to a couple of times in the spec -- it's not
clear why this is used instead of 'timed track'
* 'the WebSRT file must WebSRT file using cue text' -- I guess this
should be 'the WebSRT file must be a WebSRT file using cue text'

Also -- is trackgroup out of the spec?
