There isn't a @title in either the HTMLTrackElement or TextTrack interface; the
new string proposed in Comment 26 would suffice. Then, as you suggest:
@kind='metadata', @label=Ogg name. I still think it would be valuable to put
the Ogg title into the new string so @new_string=Ogg content_type + role +
title, The reason I think Ogg title is important is that it provides a way to
further differentiate the type of metadata content beyond the more generic
