[Bug 12043] For better compatibility with .SRT, could the FULL STOP be replaced with a COMMA? So instead of 00:00:00.000 it would be 00:00:00,000

I filed this bug while reviewing the WebVTT spec for implementation in a JS
subtitle engine which already works with .SRT. I was not able to find any
reasoning for WebVTT's change to a period for the seconds-frac separator.

SRT: hh:mm:ss,fff
WebVTT: hh:mm:ss.fff

I think that re-use of existing SRT tools and implementation of subtitle
interpreters would be much helped if we could adopt the SRT version for the
timestamp format. Thanks!
