WebKit have implemented tolerating whitespace on the cue setting such that
spaces between cue names and values (behind the colon) are ignored.

Basically, in http://dev.w3.org/html5/webvtt/#parse-the-webvtt-settings between
steps 2 and 3 there is a "skip whitespace" (except that we now can't leave step
1 as is any more and have to do explicit parsing string by string).

Should this be a WebKit bug or should we be more generous in the spec?
