I agree. Some months ago i've also sent a note about the use of colours for identify speakers (suggesting to add speaker name)

    Oggetto: Timed Text format
      
    I am thinking of sending in the following comment:
    
    Default length
    
    Section 6.2.3 defining defaultLengthUnit says
    
    [[[
    If not specified, the default length unit must be considered to be pixels.
    ]]]
    
    For accessibility reasons, it seems better in a pure text format to use an  
    element based on font size, such as the em unit, as a default. I realise  
    this implies a small change in the practice of authors, who are probably  
    generally accustomed to working in pixels. But then they are probably not  
    generally accustomed to working on accessibility.
    
    Thoughts? Chaals
