This is another point in favor of reworking the voice markup/syntax. As far as
I can tell, step 6 will modify what is supposed to be "the raw text of the
cue", making it not be the raw text at all. Issues with this:

* It's impossible to use the metadata state if the string happens to begin with
one of the voice syntaxes. While always possible to work around, it seems like
poor design.

* getCueAsSource() would give different results in UAs implementing the current
spec and one adding hypothetical additional voices from later spec revisions.

All in all, if the voices markup is part of the cue text (FWIW: I think it
should) then it ought to also be visible in getCueAsSource.
