It creates more divergence between the HTML and XHTML serialization.  
Authors are already confused by subtle API and CSS differences. Making  
drastic changes like this is not likely to be appreciated. There also  
seems to be very little benefit given that the HTML serialization is used  
most often. If anything, we should optimize for that serialization.

I have a very hard time understanding what problem you're trying to solve  
by the way. There is a requirement listed at the top of the page, but to  
me that seems addressed by <img alt>.
