To facilitate the discussion of allowing aria-labelledby, aria-label etc. to
replace ALT text, here is a link to the previous discussion in November
which covered a lot of ground.

Technique ARIA10 is here,  <http://t.co/sKQ2uzXgDy> tinyurl.com/pawhvqv
which has an example of an image using labelledby instead of alt.
