2. FIXED BUGS:

2.1 Bug 11207: "Make track element additions technology neutral"
reported by Sean Hayes.
Ian's rationale: "I did most of the changes. A CueSettings object
doesn't make much sense, so I just removed the constructor instead.
For the charset="" attribute I used slightly different phrasing for
essentially the same effect (so that I could cross-reference it from
the WebSRT section in versions of the spec that do still include
WebSRT)"
