Support all of HTML's character entities in WebVTT

Priority: -- → P3
Can we re-review the priority on this and other WebVTT bugs, please?

According to stats by, 30% of all caption content that they transcode is in/for WebVTT (30% for SCC, 30% for CEA608, 1% for DFXP). WebVTT is the dominant Web caption and subtitle format now.

WebVTT is now in CR and Web platform tests are failing in FF in many ways - see
just for the HTML character entities.
