Last time Ian made a change related to alt, he gave a lot of detail  
and rationale:

I'm sure Ian could explain why the current Editor's Draft differs on  
these points. However, it's not clear to me which of these points are  
deliberate change requests from WAI, and which are just incidental  
differences. Steve Faulkner already discounted some of my points as  
not being intentional differences, so I want to be sure we have the  
requests clear. I am wary of accidentally making people debate points  
that might not actually be points of contention.

Maciej
