Understanding SC 1.3.1
Under Intent it states:
“it may be most appropriate to duplicate some information (for instance, in an HTML table, providing the summary both in the paragraph before the table
and in the summary attribute of the table itself).”
Comment: Not sure why summary attribute needs to be present  if it duplicates text in para abobe.
This is giving fodder to those who wish to banish the summary attribute.
If this duplication is alright,  why then  having alt that is identical to anchor text in image link not alright?
