compare "start" to "left" alignment needs

The currently allowed alignment values of <track> and WebVTT cues are "start",
"end" and "middle".

These make sense when you just regard multi-line text rendering for a certain
area and want the text to be aligned based on its directionality.

However, where text is left (or right) aligned along the shape of a person or
other object or underneath a person, we actually need the value "left" (and
"right"), since a simple translation of the cues should not need to change the
cue settings.

See the attached image for an example.
