FWIW: I also don't think we need yet another mechanism to represent Ogg's role
values in <track> - that's what @kind was created for. As for what is in Ogg's
name - this was what <track>'s @label attribute was created for. Ogg has no
means to specify what type of metadata is in a track other than giving it in
the "name" field. So, from Ogg's POV there is nothing that we need extra.

Why can't MPEG also just throw all its extra information about codecs and
metadata types etc into the @label attribute?
