* proportion of alt="[text]", alt="", alt=" ", no alt at all.
* In the set of pages which contains img elements, distributions of  
number of img elements (how many pages with 1 img, with 2 img, etc.)

More challenging, distributions of "text", collect all the text  
contained in alts, sort them out, and then sees what are the text  
which are happening very often (I think about things like "logo"  
emerging, but there might be surprises).
