Hi Sam

Thanks for the info.

I have brought these FO's to the attention of the a11y taskforce and
WAI domain lead as I consider the current state of the image
requirements section of the spec and the decision to allow title to be
conformimg on images without alt, to be serious issues that require
action sooner rather than later.

So I will discuss what is the best way forward on these issues with my
colleagues, before making any decisions in regards to the FO's

> In my opinion, whether expedited or not, Formal Objections that are vague, incomplete, do not provide substantive arguments or rationale serve absolutely no purpose what so ever.  If such are pursued they are likely to be summarily dismissed.  If they are withdrawn, similar or more complete Formal Objections on the same issue can be raised in the future.
