Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: You're right that <input type> is not a MIME type (but <link type>
is a MIME type). However, <track> will sit next to <source>, which has type=""
and uses it for MIME type, and it would be confusing to have <track type> next
to <source type> and they mean different things. We might even want to add
type="" as a MIME type to <track> in the future.
