I've gotten lost now in where this is going. With the first two commits, 
the intention is that you get the forced subtitles (if present) without 
having to explicitly enable them - when you want the non-forced 
subtitles, you just hit the T key (TOGGLECC) to make them display. When 
you no longer want the non-forced subtitles, you hit the T key again to 
disable them and the forced ones will still be enabled. If that's not 
the behaviour you're seeing then perhaps the commits aren't working 
correctly on master, or for some videos.
