Below is a suggested new Summary section for Steve's Meta Generator CP at:

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposal/meta_name%3Dgenerator_does_not_make_missing_alt_conforming

I presume we can discuss this/others on the Text telecon later today.

<begin>

This Change Proposal provides new evidence showing how authors can, and do
directly hand-edit content in all commonly used Content Management Systems
(CMS). Since author editing can bring content into conformance with WCAG, or
take it out of conformance with WCAG, there is simply no corelation to justify
a blanket exemption from the WCAG requirement for alternative text markup on
images for CMS managed content. The two are orthagonal to one another. In
particular we show that CMS does not prevent WCAG conformance
in CMS managed content.
