I believe that would be the Ubiquity/Slideshow spec...

Fairly well defined!

One deviation I have made from it is that slides and their text are both
in the same image. The upshot there is that these are SVG images, so the
text could theoretically be modified by the slideshow program itself.
Alternatively, slideshow packages can be in files like
ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu-fr and ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu-en, though
the space consumption from duplicating things in that case could be
horrifying. (Should be noted, though, that certain languages prefer
different text layout).
