Frank wants to use layers like a Direct3D Z-Buffer. Layer 0 is black, 
Layer 1 is the movie,
Layer 2-k are for subtitles. So you can basicly add text to an existing 
subtitle without
coding some stuff twice, which is especially interesting for picture 
subtitles using a format
that supports transparency.

Then, there is a lot of self-evident stuff.
