My opinion is that if the image is not of enough significance for an
alternate text description, for whatever reason, then something like
'alt=""' might be appropriate.  I'm not sure how some user-agents would
interpret this.  Perhaps the single space would be more friendly toward some
UAs.  It will be interesting to see others' thoughts on that.
