Hi Maciej,

This bug is in the escalation process and I have written a change proposal.
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/ImgElement20090126
Issue 31 missing-alt predates the decision process, as I raised it 2008-02-07.

But you asked me to give Ian another opportunity to fix the issue.

I have been working in the accessibility task force in this effort.
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2010Mar/0007.html

Issue 31 is a big issue. That needs comprehensive attention.
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2010Jan/0328.html

The other bugs that this bug 8716 is related to and has dependencies on are:

6496
7362
8171
8646
9212
9213
9214
9215
9216
9217
9218

I hope that the issue is fixed. But if that doesn't happen, the change proposal
exists to resolve the matter for Issue 31, which is already a tracker issue.
