Hi Aaron,

I have asked the Media Fragment WG for clarification (and am also
cc-ing this email).

As far as I remember, features were only allowed to go into the
Proposed Recommendation document if they were shown to have two
interoperable implementations. Since at the time that wasn't the case
for track and id features, they weren't "allowed in". Thus, it is most
likely that referring to the WD document for these features is still
the correct path to take.

I think, if we can now show implementations for the track and id
features, that would be a good time to request the MF WG to update the
PR doc.

Regards,
Silvia.
