I agree that we should not specify a specific text track format in the spec.

WebSRT is a fine for basic captioning needs, but it does not solve all
accessiblity requirements. That is not a problem as such - the author may only
have a need for basic captioning - but tying WebSRT in the spec limits the
solutions that the spec provides.

We recommend that the HTML5 spec allow authors to add several tracks of the
same type (where type=caption), in different formats.
