--- Comment #1 from Silvia Pfeiffer <silviapfeiffer1@gmail.com> ---
Is this dispute over the @title attribute or over the @longdesc attribute?

IIUC the logic is that because of @alt="", the img element is not in the
accessibility tree and therefore @longdesc does not get exposed and is
therefore not a good way to mark this up.

This means that if you took away @alt="", the example would make sense, because
most AT in this case fill the alt text from the @title value.

Alternatively you can of course completely remove the example, as suggested in
the linked email.
