Actually, a little more specifically:
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/webvtt.html#webvtt-cue-identifier
.
But it doesn't matter as long as it is a subpart of what we define. We
are not just talking about WebVTT here, we are also talking about any
other mechanism that allows giving a time interval a name, which
includes TTML, SRT, a server side DB string - really anything. With
"unistring" we are inclusive of all these, so there is no problem.

Cheers,
Silvia.
