satisfied with this response, please change the state of this bug to CLOSED. If
you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML
Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest
title and text for the tracker issue; or you may create a tracker issue

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: 
I find your argument unconvincing. A painting with the same name as the poem
that is described as "illustrating" [1] the poem, its subject matter derived
from the poem and depicting a scene from a particular part of the poem [2], is
an image that enhances the theme and subject matter of a page whose main
content is the poem "the lady of shalott".
