mwatson2 has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/encrypted-media:

== "tracked" session type name is misleading ==
There is a danger that the "tracked" session type is mis-understood as
 being related to user "tracking" of the form recently addressed by 
the TAG: http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/doc/unsanctioned-tracking/

Since the purpose of this session type is unrelated to unsanctioned 
user tracking, it should probably have a different name.

Suggestions for bikeshed discussion: "persistent-key-usage", 
"persistent-usage-record", "persistent-record", "recorded", ...

The original "persistent-release-message" is also an option, but is a 
bit of a mouthful and doesn't capture what is actually persisted.
