What kind of suppositions? It is natural to read dialogs from up to down in
their time order.

There is a problem regarding fixing that glitch at positioning: the code
would need some wild refactoring in order to do that and still keep the
behavior where subtitles keep their position after new ones appear.

_If_ you are willing to abandon the position-keeping behavior, would you
then still prefer newer to appear above older ones and falling down when
older ones disappear? I thought it is also annoying to see new ones fall
down - usually if you don't have time to read everything you rather go read
new ones and then they move in the middle of you reading them.
