Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: 

This seems like a really esoteric feature, certainly not a "v1" feature (we
could easily add this in a future revision of the language).

Having said that, I'm not actually sure it's worth addressing explicitly at
all. In the example, the software seems to just have multiple chapter tracks 
a couple of implied ones for media and file selection (flash card vs CD), then
the tracks in the currently selected media file, which, for the "Understanding
Health" book in question seems to consist of four tracks named "level 1",
"level 2", "level 3", and "pages", and finally a couple more implied tracks
called "time" and "bookmarks". This is entirely handled already by <track
kind=chapter label> in HTML as far as I can tell.

I think before adding this feature we would need to have much more compelling
use cases and a much more concrete explanation of how it would improve
accessibility relative to what we have today.
