           Summary: Video: make positioning of caption cues more flexible
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: silviapfeiffer1@gmail.com

Currently, it is possible to apply certain styles to the cue text content
through the ::cue pseudo-element:
'color'
'text-decoration'
'text-outline'
'text-shadow'
the properties corresponding to the 'background' shorthand
the properties corresponding to the 'outline' shorthand
the properties corresponding to the 'font' shorthand, including 'line-height'

However, the automatic rendering location of the cues is on top of the video
and it is not possible to change the positioning via CSS.

Can we find a way to use 'display', 'position', 'top/left/bottom/right' on the
cues, too? (And possibly also 'overflow', 'z-index', 'clip' and 'cursor'?)
