HTML-ISSUE-206 (meta-generator): Should HTML5 have a meta generator exception to the alt requirement? [HTML 5 spec]

On product: HTML 5 spec

HTML5 currently exempts documents with <meta name="generator"> specified from alt checking. This exemption is intended to be used by WYSIWYG editors. Concerns have been raised about this functionality, including its global nature, and the fact that some non-WYSIWYG document processing tools emit <meta name="generator">. Should HTML5 retain this mechanism, change it, or just remove the mechanism entirely?
