Yeah, you're right, this fix was wrong. I accidentally put the logic in 
the 'enter' event step instead of the 'exit' even step.

I've tried to fix it again. Let me know if I'm still wrong!

Testing requirements, efficiency, the point is that the job of 
implementing a spec _is_ the job of translating the spec's requirements 
into implementation constraints while preserving the result.

It's only mentioned to initialise the value to disable it.

(The WebVTT spec is really a chapter of the HTML spec, it depends on it 
for a lot of stuff, including the definition of "text track cue".)
