It seems that this is a reasonable to look at a new format since, in my
opinion, none of the existing formats are satisfying (and yes, that
includes Timed Text). The main problem being that none of them are based
on HTML and CSS. I wonder however how you see this work interfacing with
the HTML5 specification, ISSUE-9, and the work in the a11y task force.
Is your intention to bring an alternative proposal for captions to the
task force? If yes, do you have a timeline in mind?
