There is a general issue with the way that an author specifies layout characteristics of captions and subtitles, such as font size, font family, line height, background and positioning.  The spec describes the approach of the author specifying a “fixed layout” for captions and subtitles that the user cannot change.  However, it must be possible for the user to overwrite the author’s choice of font size, or background color, for example. This is necessary for accessibility reasons, in the same way that browsers allow the user to change font size and background color.  How can we find a good solution for these conflicting interests between author and user?  We would like to get into a discussion with you on this issue.
