[Bug 14525] 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 t

I disagree with the rationale to close this bug:

"The type attribute in other contexts (<script>, <source>, <style>) is used for
MIME types, like video/webm and such."

This is not true. For <input> and <link> tags, the type attribute has the same
meaning of "kind" in <track>. In <input>, it is also an enumerated attribute as
in <track>. 

Unless there is another reason for different wording, I think that this is a
matter of inconsistent naming in the specification.
