I don't really know why it were necessary to have a near-constant
Subtitling surely works with a very non-constant dataflow and the
presentation from Thomas at GUADEC showed that it works.

The only part of GStreamer that might need filler events would be realtime
processing, where you want to know that nothing happened for some time.
But it should not be necessary for midi file reading or anything else
described in that post.
