    I would like to see the |alt| attribute for elements <img> and 
<area> changed from a required attribute to an implied one. In other 
words, markup that looks like this...

<img src="image.png" alt="">

...should look like this...

<img src="image.png">

    What are everyone's thoughts on this?
