--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Just events in themselves aren't very useful. What we need is a full API for
track selection, please bring such suggestions to the mailing list for
discussion, as no one is completely pleased with any suggestion solution so
far.

Removing myself from cc list, default on bug edits is to add, but I'm only
acting on behalf of HTML A11Y TF which is already cc'd.

Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: I agree that we need an API for getting the timed-track data. I'm
waiting for the browsers to catch up with what we have so far before expanding
the media API further.
