Comment:
Why does the element for the attribute <track> is named 'kind' ?

It should be named 'type' instead.

Also, why is 'srclang' instead of just 'lang'?

Try use same name for attributes in different tags to preserve keywords to
minimum, then it becomes easier to learn, remember and write code.
