Hi Sean,

> Yes I've been thinking it would be better to call it @altNotAsserted.  Missing is a little ambiguous as to what is actually missing.

I had changed it to "incomplete", as that is what the Change Proposal
talks about.... "Without both a src and a text alternative the <img>
element is incomplete". But altNotAsserted works too. Whatever name
the group wants is fine with me. Can anyone not live with the
attribute name "altNotAsserted"?

Best Regards,

Laura L. Carlson
