I believe role="presentation" is allowed on img, see the table here:
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#annotations-for-assistive-technology-products-aria

However, <img role="presentation"> is still required to have alt, or one of the
other alternatives.

Laura, I assume you meant that an <img> element with role="presentation" should
be allowed to not have allt specified. Is that correct?
