New YouTube Feature: Let Viewers Add Translated Subtitles

A very useful feature in YouTube, enable your videos for Auto Captioning or User Submitted Translations.

A long time ago we had open video annotations - a project which was eventually cancelled by YouTube, but the annotations and text written by users are still found in some videos today, and can be pretty funny.
My guess is they closed the open annotation project because it was often times abused. 
I hope the subtitle feature is not abused in the same way because people could really benefit from it.
