Great to hear your interest!

I would indeed encourage to write about implemented reality, even
though that will probably continue to improve over the next few

You could explain the features as specified and then explain what
works in the browsers now.

This could, in fact, contribute to the testing efforts of the <track>
element in HTML, see http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/Testing .
