Thanks.

Will add something along the lines of "If accessing the URI fails, then the
associated src is considered to have failed as well. Note that this means if
there is a nested element with alternate content, that content will be
processed." We will also add a note to the src definition about its interaction
with usemap.

Best wishes,
