I'm not entirely sure what you mean, but I don't think implying a new
element in the HTML based on text tracks within the media file is a good
idea, and nor is it necessary. Instead, the UA just needs to obtain a
list of available text tracks by combining those embedded within the
media file with those linked to from the HTML, and make them all
available to the user.

I do not understand what you mean here.
