Did you actually mean to reference this:
https://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/194

...which is the escalation of the bug you noted. I note that there is  
a call for Counter Proposals due March 21.

As well, there is a discrete difference between a full Transcript and  
a longer textual description of a media asset, and so I hope you are  
not conflating these two issues together.

Perhaps another thread or forum for that discussion?
