This is a little silly. We don't get to choose how Apple defined
their chapter format. It is what it is. Yes, it's a timed text track
with a 'text' tag and a timed text header that all known players
ignore, but at least some of which (the apple ones) still require.
Nothing I have included in this patch is discretionary, except for
correcting the field definitions in the header. If the design offends
your sensibilities, I sympathize; but we don't have a say if we
want to support the feature.
