Ted (Mike, Henri, others):

Is there any possibility of merging this proposal with the "Mint a new 
attribute for relaxing alt attribute conformance criteria in certain 
situations" proposal:

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/User:Eoconnor/ISSUE-206

Yes, there are clear differences (they even are enumerated in Laura's 
updated proposal), but it appears to me that these two proposals are 
relatively close in spirit.  The essential difference (other than 
spelling) appears to be the default?
