Also, regarding "track" vs. "item."
"Track" is familiar and common. I believe I'd even recommended its
use at one time. However, it's nothing more than a distortion of
meaning through popular usage -- "tracks" in a vinyl record (similar
to the use of "patch" for electronic musical instrumentation stemming
from the days of patch cables). The CD industry picked up this term
as well as it replies to physical sectors on the disc itself.
However, there is no "track" in data and we should eliminate an
unnecessary literal abstraction (one that will eventually require
explanation) by calling it as such. So, as unfamiliar as it is to my
ears, I recommend "item" for this role.
