The Private communication email exceptions in the current editor's draft are
beyond the scope of both HTML5 and WCAG 2.0 and should be addressed at a policy
level rather than the specification level. This rule digresses too far into
business-process issues.

This email exceptions rule makes assumptions about the lifetime of messages and
takes a static approach to disability. Emails get forwarded and the degree of
disability may vary over time. The intended recipient isn't always the actual
recipient. The intended recipient may well be able to view images, but
rendering them on a device unable to render images or have images switched off
to save on downloads.
