there's a lengthy discussion about captions/subtitles going on at the ogg accessibility list.  archives are available at http://lists.xiph.org/pipermail/accessibility/, or you can sign up at http://lists.xiph.org/mailman/listinfo/accessibility and join in.

there has been some debate over what text-display format to support initially, and the group seems headed toward support of SubRip (srt).  i've expressed concern that doing so might initially limit the usefulness of ogg captions/subtitles, and have lobbied for the inclusion of dfxp from the beginning, rather than waiting until after srt support has been established.  you can see my comments in the archives.
