The working group has not reached consensus on whether the HTML5 specification
is the canonical source of requirements or advice in regards to the provision
of text alternatives for images.
As editor I intend to identify and note points of difference in normative
requirements and informative advice between the alt spec and the HTML5 spec,
people will then be free to file bugs against the differences. 

Differences are due to:
* requirements in HTML5 not taking into account current browser, AT support
realities 
* watering down of WCAG 2.0 requirements 
* lack of normative and/or informative advice in HTML5 for some use cases
The requirement and advice deficiencies in the current HTML5 may result in
authors providing inaccessible content.
