Comment:
The <embed> should support an alt attribute. While the embedded content should
provide for accessilibility of the embedded object, the developer doesn't
always have control over those content, some embeddable formats are inherently
less accessible, and the developer should have a means to provide added
context (title can help, but different purpose) to help the user determine
whether the embedded content is worth navigating into.
