I agree that's a useful feature, I just can't understand how the wording
"positioned to a multiple of the line dimensions of the first line of the cue"
leads to it. Where do you get a multiplier? Shouldn't positioning be based on
the previous line, not all on the first line?

Actually, the useful feature in that video is just what happens after the
first, lowest cue disappears - the cue just above it doesn't move down. This is
just an implementation detail of how multiple cues are handled; cues don't ever
get repositioned after they start.

For the later cues that continue to appear higher up, I suspect they're
actually cheating by using explicitly positioned lines.
