[whatwg] Remove addCueRange/removeCueRanges

We would like to request that addCueRange/removeCueRanges be dropped from  
the spec before going into Last Call. We are not satisfied with it and  
want to see it replaced with a solution that includes (scriptless) timed  
text (a.k.a captions/subtitles). I don't think that this will be finished  
in time for Last Call however, because we need implementor experience to  
write a good spec. However, we have no intention of implementing both cue  
ranges and its replacement, so it is better if the spec doesn't provide  
any solution for now.

I have been briefly in contact with other browser vendors and while I  
cannot speak for them here, I hope those that agree will chime in if
