Why do you think TTML would not get deployed in web browsers. It seems no more outrageous to me than seeing SVG or MathML deployed. Especially if content starts showing up with it.

However at the moment I'm not expecting any single format to get a blessing by HTML WG.

I wanted to bring the attention of the Group to this effort.

subtitling starting.

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:
