To provide further context: how is this context being referenced? Is it via a <td headers=""> attribute? Via <img usemap="">? Or something else? If it just appears in the document without being referenced at all, the proposal is pretty clear that it would not be presented in any modality.

I think that might affect the answers to your questions.
