What is "an mp4 text stream"? Do you mean private packets? MP4
implements MPEG formatted streams (which includes private packets... I
think there's type 1 and type 2) and are where all subtitles reside.
There are nav packets, video packets, audio packets, and private
packets. That's on DVD. I don't know how BD streams are organized
because I don't know how to parse BD headers.
