They might not be an error but a deliberate way to work around the display
of alt as a tooltip:
You set up the page, the images nicely tagged with alt (well, not perfect
but close enough) and the client suddenly says: "hey, when I checked on my
computer all the images show some text when hovering them, I don't want
that.", so here comes an empty title to the rescue.
