It does seem unnecessarily complicated. For the usage described (enabling a
script to find its metadata track), all that's needed is to expose a single
string from the track to the script. For WebM the contents of the track's
CodecID element would be appropriate and sufficient. For Ogg, the contents of
the 'name' field should be enough. Similar simplifications for the other
formats should be possible.

Comment #37 seems to be trying to create a feature that exposes a subset of the
container-specific per-track metadata to script, which is overkill for the
use-cases described in comment #0. IMHO.
