That's what I'm saying: this could only be done if that part of parsing can
still be changed.

Instead, it would be simpler and less fragile to just end header

The first cue that isn't within a header block.  Otherwise, this would stop
mid-block and we'd be back at needing to escape "-->":

.foo { bar };
00:01.000 --> 00:02.000
