This is true, but it adds to dev time, server overhead, and complexity.

LOL... That's not a surprising response Andrew...

While I don't have any samples handy at this time, I previously did this
using the HiCaption extension
[http://www.adobe.com/products/flash/extensions/hicaption/], which worked
well and was pretty straight-forward to use.  

HiSoftware has a sample video available at:
http://www.hisoftware.com/hmccflash/hmccfl1demo.htm - quality could be a bit
better (Frame rate), but a decent sample of how it turned out.  Clicking on
the "CC" opens and closes the caption area - nice.

Cheers!
