I would like to hear how eventually being less excessive could increase 
the acceptance of the proposal. In what way do they decrease consensus 
outside the group who has consented to the the current, official A11Y 
TF consensus?

From a purely stylistic point of view - if we consider how the rest of 
the spec looks like - then that part of the text[1] do contain very 
many illustrative images, I have no problem with admitting that.
