Oh, my bad. I mistook this for one of the other bugs.

It's way too early to do multitrack. If we add it now, it'll be very poorly
implemented and will result in a terrible experience for anyone who uses it.
Indeed, premature implementation can end up breaking the feature for years
(this has happened several times in the past even with HTML"5" features, e.g.
look at how we screwed up with postMessage() security or look at the
pushState() arguments issue). I don't think this should be an LC blocker, and
would recommend marking this LATER. However, I'll leave this bug open for the
task force to do with as desired if having the bug open is helpful.
