Good day, Robert.

RB> I'm wondering whether we need @alt in addition to @title?
+1

RB> 2) the rich fallback (sometimes through @longdesc)

The following are better, than @longdesc:

<link src="./a.jpg"><i>rich</i> <b>fallback<b></link>
<link src="./a.mpg"><i>rich</i> <b>fallback<b></link>
<link src="./a.wav"><i>rich</i> <b>fallback<b></link>

Now <link> is not used inside <body>,
so there is no any conflict.
