Ah, sorry. I thought you were talking about fallbacks, not more than one
image being displayed.

I don’t see an issue with this case. You have three selectors setting
three different content values. You can easily add three separate alt
values. Of course, this works just fine with alt being a separate property
*or* being an additional value on the content property (perhaps separated
by an 'alt' keyword?)
