How would you access this "track" on the original source? Is it a track you can select for playback, or a response to a remote instruction?

Handbrake can pass through most subtitle tracks into MKV files right now. But anything based upon Java in the original would likely not work. There are a lot of features in BDs that won't be in the first-generation MKV file generated by your ripping software, so it would not be available for handbrake to do anything with.

As for "animated" subtitles, I see those all the time with fan-generated Substation Alpha (ssa/ass type) subtitles. They don't play well in many players, but handbrake can burn them in with full animation.
