I expect there will be 3 Change Proposals to choose between: the two you
mention[1][2], and a third (Silvia's "Introduction of a @transcript=URL
attribute" proposal)[3].

Right, the [1] proposal advocates deferring the addition of a mechanism
for programmatic association of transcripts with media elements in HTML

> And the transcript will be integrated with media element, right?

Yes, the [2] and [3] proposals advocate such a feature, though with a
somewhat different design.

I assume you're referring to [2]. This is a proposal for ISSUE-194, not
for ISSUE-203.

I'm not sure what you're quoting here. I think you're referring to how
the proposal at [1] mentions that authors can currently use a
combination of WAI-ARIA attributes and RDFa or Microdata to mark up
transcript links. I don't think I understand the question.

Both nonzero-edit proposals ([2] and [3]) allow for linking to HTML or
text files, regardless of what server is hosting what.

Any method of indirection will be more complex than a direct link, but
there are several other design considerations that argue for using an
indirect link for these use cases, as I argue in [2].

I hope the text of all three change proposals is clear enough to
establish the design tradeoffs of the different approaches. If it's not,
please provide feedback so Silvia and/or I can improve our proposals!
