From our point of view, once we've implemented out-of-band WebVTT
support, authors will have subtitle support, and so any additional
in-band subtitle track in Ogg would be redundant.
If we supported WebVTT in Kate (or some other in-band Ogg track) we'd
increase our maintenance burden. Whereas if we only implement WebVTT
support inside a <track> element, we can share that implementation
between WebM and Ogg.
