The HTML5 spec now requires <track> to parse like <param> and <source>. Mike(tm) Smith has patched the Java version of the parser. Need to land the translation into m-c.

Add track element support to the parser
Mike, are you ok with being the hg author of record for the code that is autogenerated from your Java patch?

Don't forget "dev-doc-needed" keyword for those bugs, otherwise documentation is a game of hazard.
Adding link to specification.
Documentation updated to indicate Firefox compatibility:
Also listed on Firefox 6 for developers.
If I understand well this bug, the documentation is not accurate. Support for <track> wasn't the goal of this bug, merely its support by the HTML parser.
In other terms, the compatibility matrix in https://developer.mozilla.org/en/HTML/Element/track shouldn't have been updated (I've corrected it).
And in Firefox 6 for developers, I've updated the sentence to be more accurate.
(I got feedback from a web developer trying to use this feature using Aurora and the MDN information — yes! There are some people using these! — and surprised that it failed)

Well, this bug is in the parser component. Resummarizing to make things clearer.
