Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: alt="" isn't about providing a short text alternative, it's about
providing an alternative. It just so happens that a limitation of <img>,
<area>, and <input> forces the alternatives for those particular elements to
only be text, with no markup. However, that's a bug, not a feature.
