Status: wontfix
Change Description: no change
Rationale: alt and aria-labelledby are not the same, alt as implemented has
different effects, for example if there is a none empty alt present the
presence of the image is identified in most user agents and the text
alternative is displayed with a visible relation to the image indicator.
