The test was incorrect:
 https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests/pull/898

It's now fixed:
 
http://www.w3c-test.org/html/semantics/embedded-content/media-elements/interfaces/HTMLElement/HTMLMediaElement/addTextTrack.html

We now get 8 passes on Chrome and IE at least, with 3 failures due to
wrong exception and wrong handling of undefined parameter. I believe
addTextTrack could be removed from the features at risk.
