           Summary: The pause-on-exit flag should lead to the paused for
                    user interaction state

In the current cue processing algorithm, a cue whose pause-on-exit flag is set
causes the normal paused state when the cue stops being relevant. However,
since the pause-on-exit flag can be used only by the system for a certain
special purpose, this flag should cause the "paused for user interaction" state
rather than the normal paused state, so that the state can be controlled only
through a special interface, not thorough the normal pause/resume interface.

For example, for extended video descriptions which is a promising use case of
the pause-on-exit flag as discussed in the a11y task force (
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2011Jun/0065.html ), the
paused state needs to be controlled through accessibility APIs while it should
not be affected by the user's pause/resume operations.
