This is of interest to the this task force:

This group will work on text tracks for video on the Web, applied to
captioning, subtitling and other purposes. This group plans to work
initially on: 1) Documenting a semantic model underlying the caption
formats in use, notably TTML, CEA 608/708, EBU STL, and WebVTT. 2)
Creating a community specification for WebVTT. 3) Defining the mappings
between WebVTT and some selected formats, including at least TTML
(W3C/SMPTE), and CEA 608/708. 4) Creating web developer reference and
tutorial material, including worked examples. 5) Creating a test suite
and/or tools. A possible transition to REC-track for some of these
document(s) is envisaged and that possibility will be used to guide the
work and procedures. The group may produce recommendations for work in
other groups, such as CSS, HTML5, and TTWG.
