Thank you for raising this issue. We've taken this into consideration and
have made a change to the spec accordingly.

Here is the spec and an example of how to include image alt text in a post:

Additionally, we've updated the testing tool to provide a test for this,
and we now know that there are 4 implementations that support this feature.

Please let me know if you feel this has addressed the issue, and I will
close our issue on GitHub.

Thanks again, I'm very glad to have been able to make this change to
improve the spec!
