What I was thinking was that we could have a cue that starts within the
skipped time, but should continue to be displayed afterwards. A
sufficiently advanced player may be able to skip bytes without decoding
them, but in that case, it would skip any cues data within those bytes.

It sounds like we don't want to allow that though?
