The Change Proposal for ISSUE-80 proposes striking the following content from the spec:

--------
(under "Images whose contents are not known"):
<li>The <code title=attr-title><a href="dom.html#the-title-attribute">title</a></code> attribute is present and has a non-empty value.</li>

and (under "4.8.1.1.14 Guidance for conformance checkers"):

<li>The <codetitle=attr-title><a href="dom.html#the-title-attribute">title</a></code> attribute is
present and has a non-empty value (as <a href="#unknown-images">described above</a>).</li>
---------

Rationale for these clauses in their two respective places should be provided. Note: this overlaps with Laura's Change Proposal for ISSUE-31, which suggests multiple changes, including one of the above two changes. The Chairs may reconsider how best to present these questions to the Working Group as the current set of issues does not seem to align very well with the set of independent questions.

Maciej
