  No, not really; not as long as the *alternative* content is there and
  accessible.

  In the most generic terms possible: not every type of data that some
  author might want to embed in HTML will be perceivable by all users.

  We need to focus on how to best supply alternatives; not on how to
  ensure, come hell or high water, that everyone get the same content
  wrapped in the same way.
