I don't have any advice, I'm trying to work out what the spec should say.

Is the text you quoted sufficient? Or should we instead advise authors to
provide this text outside the image as well, or instead? How would you write
the entire alt="" text for that page's webcam image?

Are you suggesting it should just say this?:

   <img src="..." alt="Picture and weather data from GENEVA - SWITZERLAND">

I'm not trying to "trap" you or some such. I'm trying to work out what I should
put in the spec, e.g. as an example, or for advice.
