[Bug 14646] <track> Don't use one-letter settings. They are non-intuitive and hard to remember. It makes little sense to use a single letter for the setting but then a sensible string for the value. Please use "align" instead of "A", etc.

Wouldn't that be like having <paragraph>, <emphasis>, and <linebreak> instead
of <p>, <em>, and <br>? I mean, I agree that for someone new to the language
it's more approachable, but at the end of the day there's only a few of these
and making them short has the distinct advantage of making it easier to type
once you know what they are.

Note that this is directly derived from similar things in SRT.
