I'd like to note that I wrote an overview on my blog yesterday [1] and also solicited feedback from the community.

I don't consider this to be random voting, nor do I expect the respondents have all the context. I also know that my followers (all 2 of them) hold a similar view as I do, so I don't expect to hear a viewpoint different from my own.

I do, however, hope to discover some nuggets (for either viewpoint) that maybe I had not considered that I can bring back here for discussion. I don't think lack of membership here precludes having a voice, though I do see the value in having somebody collecting that information to present back here.

And for the record, I am against loosening alt attribute restrictions, as I was against it the last time it came around for discussion.
