Status: partially Accepted
Change Description: kept core requirements, removed requirements from examples.
Rationale: Defining the conformance requirements for provision of a text
alternative in such granular terms has lead to erroneous requirements being
included the specification, these did not serve users or authors well. The
rigidity of the requirements did not take into account varied use cases and
what the user groups who benefit from text alternatives may want.
