Not specifically; apologies for the confusion.

That seems reasonable -- and would be a good reason for not warning all
authors using alt="" with a specific recommendation to add

But _if_ alt="" should imply role=presentation (and I don't feel
sufficiently informed that my opinion on that should have any weight)
then I was wondering whether this could be done by browsers rather than

Either of the above would result in not having the warning.
