It seems to me that if Bobby complains about that, then Bobby is
simply wrong.

Height and width attributes can be a barrier to accessibility, because
they trigger a bug in many graphical browsers causing ALT attributes
not to be rendered when image loading is off.  But I don't see how
absence of them can ever be an accessibility issue.  How does
Bobby justify it (if indeed that's what it's complaining of)?
