[Bf-committers] Subtitles workflow in the sequencer

I wanted to ask if there are any ideas/plans for bringing a reasonable subtitle workflow into the sequencer internally.
I am asking mainly because I started developing an addon for subtitles where this functionality is planned:

User adds an subtitle strip, which is actually an image strip. A default subtitle template is rendered in background and added as this strip. User can change the template and edit the text, changes are rendered in background.

additionally to this changing template of all subtitles in sequence editor, importing or exporting subtitles as .srt could be done.

Advantage of this system would be easy adding of subtitle templates(just blender files with anything in them), usage of background computing. 

Any ideas to this will be welcome.
