Thank you for discovering this and reaching out to the group.

I support what I think was the intent of the original plan which was to
have the most modern standards track published version of the MSE spec
reachable at https://www.w3.org/TR/media-source/. Having the additional
short-names will help disambiguate references (we could update the SOTD of
the current publication to reference the original REC via the
media-source-1 shortname's link and perhaps also let readers understand
that the current version (v2) is also reachable at the alias media-source-2
link. What do you think about doing such SOTD update?
