Actually, no -- the title of a specification isn't normative.  Sometimes, the title of a document is even just some acronym, like "HTML."

It would be good if you could point out where the definition of "tracking" influences the requirements that are placed on implementers, and it would be good if you could articulate what specific result you are trying to accomplish by defining "tracking".
