My proposal is that if <alt> is at block level, then it must contain
block-level elements.

If it is at inline level, then it must contain inline-level elements.

This is consistent with how I read the definition, in the draft, of a
transparent content model: removal of the element (<alt> in this instance)
leaves a structurally correct document tree.
