closed captioning for HD?

has anyone had CC added to a HD program tape? Is it possible?

I read that Discovery HD channel requires the HD program delivered on Sony HD Cam, but also...

"The HD master must be accompanied by a closed captioned Betacam SX or Digital Betacam standard definition down converted dub. This standard definition dub shall contain a 16:9 letterboxed image obtained from the HD master. The program content shall be exactly the same on both versions of the master and the times codes shall match exactly. Audio shall also match for any Lt/Rt or Lo/Ro content but no Dolby E is necessary. Closed captioning shall be on line 21.a seperate"

That makes it sound like the CC can't just be included on a Sony HD Cam tape?
