It would be very helpful to have a section in the "HTML5: Techniques for
providing useful text alternatives" document on role="presentation" explaining
how it works and advantages over alt="".

This relates to:

1.  The Accessibility Coordination Group's "Consensus Resolutions on Text
alternatives in HTML 5" 
http://www.w3.org/2009/06/Text-Alternatives-in-HTML5

The WAI CG doc specifies:

<img> is only valid when at least one of the following is true:

* @alt is present (empty or non-empty) OR
* @aria-labelledby is present (non-empty only) OR
* the <img> is located within a <figure> that has a non-empty <legend> OR
* @role="presentation"

2. Bug 9214: Allow role="presentation" on img 
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9214

3. The email request to the a11y task force: Add rationale or exclude
role="presentation", aria-labelledby & aria-labelled attributes from alt change
proposal?

4. HTML Tracker ISSUE-31

Thanks.
