In general, divs are going to be targeted to a single region and the text that goes into a given region is going to be sequential by default.  Content to multiple regions are going to be in parallel.  For some reason we got it backwards.


<div timeContainer='par'>
  <p begin='1s' end='2s'>Caption1a</p>
  <p begin='2s' end='3s'>Caption1b</p>
</div>

Caption1a is from 1s to 2s and then Caption1b from 2s to 3s.

<div timeContainer='seq'>
  <p begin='1s' end='2s'>Caption2a</p>
  <p begin='2s' end='3s'>Caption2b</p>
</div>

Caption2a is from 1s to 2s and then Caption2 from 5s to 6s.

So, I believe that the default value for div, which is par, is correct.
That's what the implementations are doing.

However, the default value for body, which is currently seq, is
incorrect. We'd like the children to be displayed simultaneously, so we
need to change the default to par as well.
