Chapter API available?

Does JW Player 6 enable the retrieval of chapter information (from an already specified WebVTT chapter track) via the JavaScript API? This would be useful so that I don't have to reparse the WebVTT in another JavaScript routine. The practicality for this request is to be able to dynamically build a chapter list on the web page from the data already consumed by JW Player 6. So, for example, if I had a video with five chapter points, I could retrieve the chapter data points from the JW Player instance in JavaScript, and create a bulleted list of the chapters with all the seek times ready to go.

We currently don’t have a way to access chapter information via our API just yet. This is something we are currently investigating, however. :)
