--- Comment #4 from dmacdona <david100@sympatico.ca> ---
I think the idea of fallbacks is good, the bug is asking for html5 to “describe
a model for fallback content that allows a user to choose from any available
fallback” 

So it appears they would like for there to be some way to choose from one of
the fallbacks. I don’t think the bug is well articulated. I don’t know if it is
something we want to prescribe ... and to my knowledge in the accessibility
world there is not an emerging single best practice to point towards... WCAG
does not require it. So I don’t think this bug needs to be pursued as it
stands... perhaps in an html next, someone can create a fully baked
recommendation extension that could be rolled in... but that would be a
separate matter.
