This is obviously untrue. rdf:Alt (the A should be capitalised) gives a list
of alternatives of which any can be used. Generally you'd either not make
the decision, but rather pass the complete list of alternatives on to the
next layer of processing, or else pick the first one that is usable (a
criteria that obviously depends on the application). As such "often" and
"rarely" generally would not belong in an Alt together.
