> There isn't a @title in either the HTMLTrackElement or TextTrack interface;

Every HTML element has a title attribute - it's a global attribute, see

.

Ogg's "title" field is a free form string, human readable. So it probably
better matches what @label should have. Ogg's "name" field is machine readable.
So it's likely more useful in your new field.
