As to "concrete use cases": it is just possible that the reason less are
forthcoming is that virtually all the tutorials for HTML are written by and
for people who can see. This includes most Web authors and the bulk of
people designing markup languages.

So my counter-suggestion is that you see if you can prod people who
write/teach HTML into writing more useful and widely distributed materials
of the sort typified by @alt, @longdesc, and @summary.

Love.
