I agree with Mark, the next step for this is to raise the topic in WICG.

This discussion has gone slightly further than I anticipated, the intent behind my original question was to simply determine whether our ask is for `DataCue` or something more specific to `emsg`.

Thank you everyone for your input here. I'll summarise requirements:

* The API must expose `emsg` events to Web applications, and include all fields, including `schema`, `value`, and `message_data`
* The API must allow Web applications to create such events (to allow handling of events in the MPD)
* The API must trigger events at the right point in the media timeline during media playback

Whether the appropriate solution is to expose via an `EMSGCue` or `VTTCue` or other API is best discussed with implementer input, so let's do that in WICG.

The one requirements-level question that I would like to ask before we move the discussion to WICG is: Exactly why is a native API needed, and can the same effect not be achieved through application level script?
