Do you or anybody have any commitment from browser vendors that they will
improve the behaviour so that the content of the title attribute will be
displayed when images are not? When there is a commitment to implement this
from the major browser vendors, feel free to add it into the spec. The cases
for when alt can be omitted should not include situations where the text
alternative is not displayed when an images are not.
