Clarification: The above seems like a slight misrepresntation of my 
position. I support what HTML5 says, that UAs are encouraged to repair 
for lack of @alt. @title is an obvious repair candidate. But the CP 
does not require that @title must be used for repair. With regard to 
'separate functionality': any repair for missing @alt risks blurring 
some picture.
