[clreq] Is bopomofo needed for on-screen captions?

r12a has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/clreq:

== Is bopomofo needed for on-screen captions? ==
The question arose for TTML2. See https://github.com/w3c/ttml2/issues/253

It is being argued that 
> If Chinese subtitlers do not use bopomofo currently, are not asking for bopomofo support in the near future, and no one will be able to prove implementation support of bopomofo, is this really something that needs to be solved in TTML2?

If you have a view on this or have an insight into use of bopomofo for subtitling, you may want to contribute to that issue thread.
