I made another pass through the overview document with the new non-political approach in mind.  Among other edits, I removed the "widely used" references to SRT because that's more a matter of opinion, I think.  I also did a general grammar sweep, tidied up some inconsistent terminology and conformed some language.

I can't add this to the chart but I've heard a rumor of a new TTML implementation, this time by a major US entity.  I'm trying to establish if it's true or false; will let you know what I find.
