HTML-ISSUE-202 (figcaption-words): Missing alt should not be considered conforming in  the presence of figcaptions over 50 words in length [HTML 5 spec]

Raised by: Sam Ruby
On product: HTML 5 spec

This issue was raised on behalf of Janina Sajka and https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=13651 :

While clearly arbitrary as to the particular number of
words, fig-captions of greater length are reliably not acceptable alternatives
for missing alt, where fig-captions of but a few words generally are.
