Hi Ian,

I am copying the accessibility task force on this message for input.

I apologize that this is taking so long. The Task Force has just begun
to discuss the topic of text alternatives for bugs 8716 and 8171 which
directly impacts the change proposal for Issue 31 missing alt.
Hopefully they will want to provide help with the dependent bugs [1]
and with the Change Proposal that has been previously sought [2] [3].

Thank you very much for removing the Paragraph-Section-Heading
loophole for not providing a text alternative. The spec revision looks
good to me:
Anyone who doesn't think that Bug 9217 is fixed properly please speak up.

Best Regards,
