The WebVMT [Editor's Draft](http://w3c.github.io/sdw/proposals/geotagging/webvmt/) deliberately duplicates a small amount of overlapping content to decouple from [WebVTT](https://www.w3.org/TR/webvtt1/) and ensure that they are recognised as discrete formats.

Similarities are mentioned where appropriate:

  * The [WebVMT comment block](http://w3c.github.io/sdw/proposals/geotagging/webvmt/#commentblock) is identical to WebVTT, which is stated in the Editor's Draft.

  * The [WebVMT style block](http://w3c.github.io/sdw/proposals/geotagging/webvmt/#cssstyleblock) is similar, which is also stated, though it includes the `::cue-map` pseudo-element to allow discrimination between map annotation and text styles.

  * [WebVMT cues](http://w3c.github.io/sdw/proposals/geotagging/webvmt/#webvmtcues) are similar to [WebVTT cues](https://www.w3.org/TR/webvtt1/#model-cues), with an optional end time attribute, but are defined directly with respect to HTML5 [text track cues](https://www.w3.org/TR/html51/semantics-embedded-content.html#cue).

   * WebVMT [HTML5 `<track>` binding](http://w3c.github.io/sdw/proposals/geotagging/webvmt/#proposedsolution) is similar to WebVTT, which is stated in the Editor's Draft, and may be impacted by the [Web Incubator CG activity](
https://github.com/w3c/strategy/issues/113#issuecomment-432971265) proposed last month.
