If you do this please make sure to define in detail how it should all 
work. For example, what happens if a script running inside a cue does 
"history.back()"? What happens if an auto-playing video element in a cue 
is given a URL that points to a resource that requires HTTP 
authentication? Is each cue a separate Document? What happens to media 
queries in a cue?

These questions are but the tip of a very, very large iceberg.
