I also found the following open bug, which I will resolve in the next week:

*Bug 23059* <https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=23059> - Alt
text section should address a headshot of a person with their name written

and another related bug which I resolved:

*Bug 23207* <https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=23207> - Alt
text should identify image class when relevant

I could find no other related bugs (after this second pass)
