That's an interesting read. I think a <link> element inside <video> or
<audio> could actually work to satisfy UC1 and UC2.

Note that my old proposal for a <transcript> element was for an
*interactive* transcript much like in use by TED or YouTube. The key
idea was to have the *browser* render the interactive transcript and
do the linking of the timed text elements back to the media element
instead of expecting the page author to do this job. This would be
possible using WebVTT files as a source for transcripts, which is what
the proposal at
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposal/Issue194_SP suggested
for a <transcript> element.

The <transcript> element suggested in this proposal is merely a
replacement for a <div>, which I don't think would be necessary.

Nice to see that this effort is being picked up again!
