One problem is that our surmises of where the paths lead are inevitably flawed. 

We thought we had it from start with the alt attribute. Any further tinkering may merely be a 
seductive way to introduce new disappointments. 

If the intent to accessibilise is sacrificed with edge-case nitpicking, we can never get the results 
we are looking for. 

In essence it in fact "ain't broke" and to fix it in response to irresponsible exception-citations 
is simply wrong.
