NO default for <img alt="sometext"> is defined, so how does a lack of
definition mean that user agents must not map <img alt="sometext" as an image?

Anyway, this is not getting us anywhere, the editor needs to clarify it and
resolve this bug in some way. If his intent to not allow user agents to must
not map <img alt="sometext"> as an image. Then he should declare this
unambiguously in the spec.
