Let's see.

Looking at kateenc code I believe that the intention was to keep
Kate "compatible with SRT markup" whatever it means.

The encoder does not interpret/recode markup between srt and kate. What
it does is to handle the metainformation about the presence of markup
(which presence or absence is explicit in Kate).

So we will quite certainly do the users a favor by _not_ cleaning the
possibly present markup tags, when converting from kate to srt.

Does this sound good enough?
