EDITOR'S RESPONSE: This is an Editor's Response to your comment. If you are
satisfied with this response, please change the state of this bug to CLOSED. If
you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML
Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: There's nothing wrong with verbose alternative text. Pictures, we
are told, are worth a thousand words; textual alternatives of that length are
not out of the question. There is no usability problem here since an AT can
just provide a way for the user to signal that it should move on to something
more interesting.
