Well, possibly, but I think my terminology matches the existing code
better, there is an actual bitstream filter to convert between mov and
plain text text subtitles, and the subtitle "renderers" are called
decoders right now.
I'd guess that the current architecture will need some changes, but it
might be a good starting point, especially to get something done
