Media queries are about what media type something is rendered onto, not what
content type is being rendered. I don't understand how the knowledge where we
have captions, subtitles or descriptions helps in deciding where to position a
track differently on different devices and what effect that would have on the
rest of the page. Can you provide an example not just of the markup but also of
the consequences?
