Hello All:
 
These are all great questions on equivalents. I also agree that 2.0 Shows promise that in the future it will be usable. I do think we need to be careful about proclaiming things criminal and refer back to attorneys to evaluate the law :) These have been exciting years of advancement and I think we can all find good and bad things in every web site. 
 
When I founded the CynthiaSays site and resource it was done to promote and educate. It also promoted what a keep diligent and never consider yourself done as related to web content accessibility attitude. I think almost every page can be better and pointing out flawed sites should only be done as examples and perhaps discussions.
 
On Equivalents:

Image is a compass quarter pointing in to the N Signifying north. Is the Alt equivalent ?

I would think not. I see a compass pointing north, I feel that it represents guide. I think we can all agree that these lists are positive and we can all learn and grow from them. As people with specific domain Expertise we must continue to learn and grow as well! 
 
We look forward to the implementation of WCAG 2.0 across all of our solutions and the continued support and outreach of the W3C WCAG Group.
