IMHO, the most logical place would be libavfilter:
- one filter convert text subtitles to bitmap subtitles;
- one filter to forcefully compose overlapping bitmap subtitles;
- one filter to overlay bitmap subtitles on top of a video.
Currently, AFAIK, libavfilter has no support for subtitles filters, but it
does not seem very hard to add. Adding support for subtitles filters to the
ffmpeg command line tool would probably require a little more work.
Unfortunately, I fear that adding support for mixed subtitles+video filters
to the command line tool would be much harder.
