--- Comment #11 from nigelmegitt <nigel.megitt@bbc.co.uk> ---
It may be true that language can be specified externally, but that's not
especially helpful for asset management. 

I would argue also that the spec is incomplete in that it includes the WebVTT
Language Objects to indicate when the language is different from the
surrounding text language but no mechanism to indicate what the outer level
language is. The obvious fix for this would be to add a language header with
file scope, e.g. a reserved keyword for a metadata header, like "lang" so you
might have a file that begins:

WEBVTT

lang: en-GB
