Before I brought up that there was a mismatch between the text/vtt  
registration's "WebVTT files all begin with one of the following byte  
sequences:" and the WebVTT parser's handling of the signature. Hixie made  
a change to the parser to address it, but they still don't match.

Consider a file that contains "WEBVTT foo" and no LFs. It matches the  
text/vtt's registration, but the parser rejects it in step 9, because  
there's no LF.

I think the parser step 5 should be changed to collect characters that are  
not LF, space or tab, and then check that the collected characters are  
"WEBVTT", and then if the next character is space or tab, skip characters  
that are not LF, and remove step 9.
