That's a very useful list!

In addition, there are other pieces of information which can prove useful as alternative content when nothing else is available or in special circumstances, and thus it can be useful for UA to make them available to the user. These include: 

a) raw HTML associated with an element or range,
b) filename associated with an IMG,
c) title attribute for any element
