Excellent question. This would be great for transcoding as well, since 
one could get text subtitles without OCRing the DVD subtitles. I didn't 
even realize there was this option or that the CC's existed until you 
mentioned it. It seems one difference is that the CC's have more audio 
cues and mention specifically who's talking than ordinary subtitles.
