TextTrack.language is defined as returning a BCP 47 language tag, but should it
be normalized at all? The language is most likely not going to be on BCP 47
form in the source for in-band tracks, so in the mapping there is a choice in
what to do with capitalization of both the language itself and the script,
region, etc.

Also, for out-of-band tracks from <track>, should the srclang attribute be
reflected in TextTrack.language verbatim, or should it be coerced to a BCP 47
language tag with some normalization?
