i provided very concrete suggestions could you respond to these:

>suggest adding the following:

>1. browsers should display as text the complete content of the alt attribute if
>an image is not available or images are disabled.

>2. browsers should not display as text the content of the title attribute if an
>image is not available or images are disabled

>OR

>2a. browsers should display as text the complete content of the alt attribute
>and the title attribute if present, if an image is not available or images are
>disabled. 
>Browsers should provide a method for users to distinguish between title text
>and alt text if an image is not available or images are disabled.


is the advice is suggested provided? if not why should it not be provided?
