This morning I sent Silvia Pfeiffer a zip file of images taken from videos showing captions with various styling features.  Most of the examples were generated with DFXP/TTML.

On the other hand, I have to say that I don't imagine at the moment
Timed Text being deployed in Web browsers, due to its lack of use of
HTML and CSS. So, this effort has more chances to get deployed rapidly
along with HTML5 video imho,

FYI, I've started looking at the timed track bugs:

   http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9452
   http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9471

Right now I'm mostly collecting use cases and drafting ideas, but I hope
to have a first draft proposal integrating the suggestions in those bugs
and some other material in the spec in the coming weeks. If anyone has any
sample videos or still from videos showing real-world use of timed tracks
in ways that demonstrate possible features I haven't considered, please
let me know. So far, I and some others in the WHATWG list and on #whatwg
have collected the following:
