H27: Providing text and non-text alternatives for object 
Documents that load media with the object element, when the media format is
not an accessibility-supported content technology.	

H53: Using the body of the object element
Documents that load media with the object element.
User Agent and Assistive Technology Support Notes
This technique is not supported well by assistive technologies and
cross-browser support is irregular.

It appears from the applicability that H27 is covered by H53. So why not
merge the two?
Based on the user agent note following H53, is it alright to include this
technique as a sufficient technique?
