As far as I can tell, the text here requires validators to report an error if
alt is absent and none of the conditions applies:
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#guidance-for-conformance-checkers

"A conformance checker must report the lack of an alt attribute as an error
unless one of the conditions listed below applies:..."

In particular, the set of conditions there seems just as checkable as the set
in the Change Proposal. Therefore I think this bug should be resolved as
WORKSFORME.
