Fair enough, although I felt that my question wasn't so much about "how 
do I do this" but rather a clarification of existing spec.

In which case, getting back to the point of this list: could the 
situation be clarified in a future draft? And no, I wouldn't say it's a 
"contrived" situation...it's a real world situation where, for 
accessibility and interoperability reasons, an author needs to provide 
alternative content to an object (as per spec) which happens to be in a 
form (also nothing wrong per spec).

Right, off to find a more suitable list then...
