Suggested Title: Missing alt should not be considered conforming in  the
presence of figcaptions over 50 words in length

Suggested Summary: While clearly arbitrary as to the particular number of
words, fig-captions of greater length are reliably not acceptable alternatives
for missing alt, where fig-captions of but a few words generally are.
