This is another point in favor of reworking the voice markup/syntax. As far as I can tell, step 6 will modify what is supposed to be "the raw text of the cue", making it not be the raw text at all. Issues with this:

* It's impossible to use the metadata state if the string happens to begin with one of the voice syntaxes. While always possible to work around, it seems like poor design.

* getCueAsSource() would give different results in UAs implementing the current spec and one adding hypothetical additional voices from later spec revisions.

All in all, if the voices markup is part of the cue text (FWIW: I think it should) then it ought to also be visible in getCueAsSource.

Agreed. I'll fix this as part of bug 10320.

Status: Accepted
Change Description: dropped the voice identifier feature as a separate issue (I'll readd it as markup in the cue text itself as discussed in bug 10320)

Change won't show immediately due to pub issues.
