+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #22075 +++

Authors need a way to shrink the rectangel in which the track cues are
displayed using CSS. 
The webvtt features for positioning are not suitable here. 

A typicall usecase is a scripted custom styleable mediaplayer, where the
controls are placed over the video rendering area. In this case the author
needs a way to "reserve" this space for those controls. Due to the fact, that
this is depending on the style of a webpage and not related to the contetnt of
the vtt file, it has to be defined using CSS. For example:

::cuedisplay {
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    right: 0;
    bottom: 40px; /* space is needed for overlaying custom styleable controls
at the bottom of the video */
