[whatwg] WebVTT feedback (and some other <video> feedback that snuck in)

I guess I may be confused.

I see two ways of rendering VTT (at least):

1) the UA interprets only VTT, and chooses 'suitable' fonts etc. 
2) the UA interprets VTT with class markups and an associated CSS style sheet or sheets, and the author and the UA between them can go hog wild.

In case (2), you get to use any fancy (preferably legible :-)) font you like, if the UA is willing to support it.

Does this not satisfy?
