True, but that is old and ugly. It was added to get interface with libass
working, and then people built upon it, but it was never really thought for
the long term or support for other codecs.

Clément and I have been discussing how to replace it with a more generic and
clean structure, but it appears that designing a data structure for styled
subtitles is harder than designing a structure for an image or PCM audio.
Clément had a proposal at some time, but I do not know how much it
