So, to give you some context: the editorial changes that John registered were
all feedback on the spec text from a person in the a11y industry.

Some of these changes are just about getting the text politically right, so
they include the right people and don't offend anyone.

This proposed change is just that: telling a blind person that their visual
component is unavailable is just not the right thing to do.

Further, the change to the last sentence is about making sure it is understood
that textual descriptions don't result in a multitrack resource (with a
separate audio resource), but rather that the synthesized audio comes from
another system.
