--- Comment #11 from Simon Pieters <simonp@opera.com> ---
Maybe we could make the auto position use 50 for start/end text alignment.

Currently,

    00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:10.000 size:50% align:start
    English text
    Arabic text

would renders as

+---------------------------------------+
|English text                           |
|         txet cibarA                   |
+---------------------------------------+
 ^ 0%               ^ 50%              ^ 100%

Arguably it is "wrong" for RTL languages. At least it's not clear to me why the
box should appear on the left side.

We made the auto positioning "do the right thing" so it would suffice to
specify align:left to get text flushed to the left, but doing the same thing
for start-aligned text was maybe a bad call?
