Ah, in addition to the features of @alt that I just mentioned [1], @alt 
does of course also incorporate the idea that one MUST use it. Whereas 
@aria-label is optional.

In my thinking, VIDEO should be implemented in textual browsers a bit 
like image maps: A short string - from @alt or eventually @aria-label - 
represents the video. And by pressing the right arrow key, one gets a 
list of available video and/or track sources.
