That's a good question. Given that they all implement SVG, including animations, I don't think it would be too hard to implement for them. But it's a guess.

That's a different beast. Not supported natively by browsers, even if theoretically it could be used. There would be several other formats (3GPP/Quicktime Timed Text [http://www.3gpp.org/ftp/Specs/html-info/26245.htm], ...).
