           Summary: Future nodes should be hidden implicitly
           Product: TextTracks CG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebVTT
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: victor.carbune@gmail.com

With the current specification, each time an author uses timestamps within a
cue they should also add a CSS rule that hides the future nodes (given that
opacity or visibility will be supported)

I suggest that when timestamps are present, the future nodes should be hidden
by default. I believe that most of the use cases expect them to be hidden,
while the ones that don't, usually have some other visual change of the future
nodes as well (e.g. Karaoke would also use a different color and therefore the
requirement to use CSS is justified)

Since hiding the nodes is a simple and extremely useful feature, it will
probably be supported by players that do not rely on CSS and therefore I think
that the exact mechanism of hiding the nodes could be done individually by each
