As a Web dev, I'd say "yes". But I also know that caption providers will not
like it when their copyrighted content is easily change-able. OTOH, copying it
to a MutableTextTrack and then making changes is not difficult, so the extra
hurdle introduced by having them immutable is small. It's not like you are
changing the original resource.
