[Bug 14294] <track> Should say that the parser can return with an error state or "not processed successfully" state, so that 'error' fires instead of 'load' on <track> if the webvtt signature is wrong

It's just a bit confusing:

f the file was not successfully processed, e.g. the format in question is an
XML format and the file contained a well-formedness error that the XML
specification requires be detected and reported to the application, then fire a
simple event named error at the track element.

Note: The WebVTT format does not report errors in this fashion.

But if the file is not WebVTT (because the signature is wrong), we want an
error event. So consider TTML, which is XML. If it contains a well-formedness
error, it is by definition not XML, and therefore also not TTML. Does error
