Along similar lines to John's question, I would like to suggest that a
timed-text language should support the creation of content that can be
rendered as either subtitles (for hearing people needing a text version of
the language) or captions (for people who cannot hear the sound, and also
need important audio inforlation conveyed in text).

Cheers
