Status: rejected
Change Description: none
Rationale: the '...' do have meaning, they are an ellipsis
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ellipsis) Just because screen readers do not
interpret them correctly, does not mean they should not be inlcuded.

The current explanations for the use of the empty alt attribute cover the
contexts you mention.
