Hypothetical edge-case, based on zero data. What proof do you have that any
user wouldn't want to have controls over their user-experience or user-agent?

Conversely, if a user-agent fails to provide this function then it is a
certainty that some (all?) users will be unable to toggle closed captions,
audio description tracks, and other additional data associated with the video
stream on or off.

Re-opened and awaiting a serious response
