It's not a message, it's the cue's text. For a metadata track, you can use  
it for anything you want, and access it with `cue.text`. For caption or  
subtitle tracks, it's text that gets rendered on top of the video.

There is always room for adding convenience APIs, it's a matter of  
demonstrating that it's a common enough need to make it worth the cost of  
adding it.
