The "Guidance for conformance checkers" section of the spec is indeed more
readable.

Thank you for making it a list.

But the substantive parts of this bug were not addressed. 

Adding TrackerIssue Keyword.

This bug is part of the change proposal, "Replace img Guidance for
Conformance Checkers" for HTML WG Issue 31.
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/ImgElement20090126
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/31

WAI CG Consensus Resolutions on Text alternatives in HTML 5 specifically
recommends:

<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 now
figcaption> OR
 * @role="presentation"

It also states they would not oppose creation of a 'autogenerated' and
'missing' attributes.
