answering Anne, I think he may be, yes.

The basic idea is to mark <track> and <source> elements with a media query that
is satisfied when a particular accessibility need is, or is not, requested. 
That would make it possible to say "don't show this if the user is susceptible
to repetitive stimulation", it would make it possible to say "this text <track>
meets a sub-titling need (in Swahili)", and so on.  Media queries also make it
possible for the rest of the page, including the layout, to respond as needed.
