Step 4 of sourcing in-band tracks says: "Set the new text track's readiness state to the value that most correctly describes the current state, and begin updating it dynamically as necessary."

This doesn't make any sense as of bug 14241, the step should just be removed.

Status: Rejected
Change Description: see diff below
Rationale: Text tracks still have a readiness state, it's just not exposed except on <track>. But it's less important now. Also, we always want it in the "loaded" state for in-band tracks, to help with bug 14260.
