As noted, there is no such distinction such as a note track and rec track based
on whether a document contains normative requirements or not, it is appropriate
to be considered a recommendation if there is an intention that the document is
to be evolved over time, rather than written and then left to go stale. The alt
spec is definitley a document that is written to provide current best practice
and authoring requirements based on the realities of browser and assistive
technology support for HTML features and as such will require updating on a
regular basis and that is the intention.
