The following answers have been successfully submitted to 'ISSUE-66 - Image
Analysis Heuristics - Straw Poll for Objections' (HTML Working Group) for
Gregory Rosmaita.



---------------------------------
Objections to the Change Proposal to Strike Paragraph
----
We have a Change Proposal to remove the image heuristics paragraph from
the img element section. If you have strong objections to adopting this
Change Proposal, please state your objections below.

Keep in mind, you must actually state an objection, not merely cite
someone else. If you feel that your objection has already been adequately
addressed by someone else, then it is not necessary to repeat it.
Objections: 





---------------------------------
Objections to the Change Proposal to Keep The Paragraph As Is
----
We have a Change Proposal to keep the HTML5 specification as is. If you
have strong objections to adopting this Change Proposal, please state your
objections below.

Keep in mind, you must actually state an objection, not merely cite
someone else. If you feel that your objection has already been adequately
addressed by someone else, then it is not necessary to repeat it.
Objections: 
the discussion of potential repair techniques, including the image
heuristics paragraph belongs in the HTML5 Alt Techniques document, which
has been compiled by Steve Faulkner and which can be found at: 

http://dev.w3.org/html5/alt-techniques/

i have an action item from the HTML Accessibility Task Force
(http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/track/actions/28) to create an Appendix to
the Alt Techniques document, which would address both "potential repair"
techniques such as image heuristics and crowd-sourcing; as well as a
discussion of existing techniques that enable authors to provide meaningful
descriptions when uploading images to aggregator sites, using the W3C's
RDFPic open source software:

http://jigsaw.w3.org/rdfpic/
http://jigsaw.w3.org/rdfpic/rdfpic-2/rdfpic-readme.html

as described in the W3C technical recommendation, "Describing and
Retrieving Photos using RDF and HTTP"

http://www.w3.org/TR/photo-rdf/





---------------------------------
Objections to the Change Proposal to Be More Explicit
----
We have a Change Proposal to be more explicit about potential repair
techniques. If you have strong objections to adopting this Change Proposal,
please state your objections below.

Keep in mind, you must actually state an objection, not merely cite
someone else. If you feel that your objection has already been adequately
addressed by someone else, then it is not necessary to repeat it.
Objections: 
any such information belongs in the HTML5 Alt Techniques document, and
should be mirrored by/aligned with WCAG 2.0
