Restrict img from taking @role=presentation whenever img provides link text.

Suggested method for solving this bug: in the #table-aria-weak, then,  for 
"img element whose alt attribute's value is present and not empty", add a
restriction in the third column saying that for img elements whose alt
attribute is used to provide link text, then  role=presentation MUST NOT be
used.
