If we really treat them as we do audio and video tracks and have them influence
HTMLMediaElement.readyState, then switching text tracks while playing would
need to bring readyState back to HAVE_NOTHING while the new track is loading
and playback would have to pause. That's not the experience you get in most
good desktop media players, where the text simply appears when it's ready.
Also, if you drop readyState back to HAVE_NOTHING, then videoWidth and
videoHeight would start returning 0, setting currentTime would be a no-op and
you'll eventually fire loadedmetadata again.
