I would like to submit http://www.w3.org/wiki/ISSUE188/GenericTextTrack as a change proposal for this issue.

The HTML5 spec generally does not specify or define file formats for external resources.

WebVTT will be used in more than just a HTML5 context:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-texttracks/2011Nov/0022.html 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-texttracks/2011Dec/0027.html
...and so should be decoupled from the HTML5 specification, as it is more than just a HTML5 captioning format.

Thanks
Frank
