Looking over this one:
  Technique A.1.3.2 [Priority 1]: In addition to providing alt-text,
  provide redundant textual links. If the A element is used instead of
  AREA, the author may describe the active regions and provide redundant
  links at the same time:

This should be a P3, not a P1. 

If authors provide client side image maps with proper ALT text for the
image and all areas, we should be very happy.

It's also hard at this point to suggest using A instead of AREA since
this is not supported by any browser and one cannot be valid HTML4 and
provide both AREA and A in the same MAP (a bug in HTML4 that I'm
working on fixing for the next release)
