Yes, it's for the case where you have both, which is not uncommon. We have
material of this kind where, for whatever reason, the captions are only
available in this form and not as a separate file.

Obviously, it's only efficient if you have a transport system which only
transports the tracks being viewed over the network, which we have and for
which there are now emerging standards (e.g. DASH).
