Thanks for all the feedback on the <overlay> idea. I've expanded somewhat  
on it at <http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/Video_Overlay>. (I used the WHATWG  
wiki because it exists and also I like MediaWiki.)

I think one of the most difficult problems in this and other proposals  
(e.g. Silvia's <itext>, from which I've stolen many ideas) is the  
algorithm for selecting a caption/subtitle resource from many candidates.  
I'm quite skeptical towards automatic language selection because of the  
failure of the UA language setting reflected in Accept-Language. I  
actually think that having sites allow the user to set a preference cookie  
for language and possible accessibility needs is much more likely to be
