It was pointed out to me that the HTML WG was not explicitly asked to review the FPWD of the WebVTT specification when it was published in Nov 2014.  If anyone in the HTML WG is interested in reviewing this specification please see the information below.  You can provide feedback by sending the feedback directly to public-tt@w3.org<mailto:public-tt@w3.org?subject=%5Bwebvtt%5D> (subscribe<mailto:public-tt-request@w3.org?subject=subscribe>, archives<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-tt/>) with [webvtt] at the start of your email's subject.
