            Bug ID: 27009
           Summary: [InbandTracks] Term definitions
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2

The specification uses terms which are undefined or not clearly defined:
"track"
"in-band track"
"sourced track"
"media resource"
"media container"
The specification should either define them or reference a definition from
another spec (e.g. HTML).

The specification is sometimes confusing when it uses the terms "track". It is
unclear if it is talking about a track in the media container or a XXXXTrack
object in the HTML JS API. In particular the use of upper case "Text Track"
should be "TextTrack" as it refers to the JS Interface. It would be beneficial
to the reader if the terms where linked to their definition and if special
styles were used to visually differentiate defined terms from JS Interface.

I volunteer to do this editing. A possible example of changes (limited to the
introduction for now) are given in this pull request:
