Call me dense if you must, but I don't see there's anything here about
a11y. Nor do I see a11y people suggesting there's an a11y issue here.
So, Henry, if it's not about validators and their use, then let's undo
the ill-advised meta generator decision and go on to important business.
There's no a11y issue here. There's no way that identifying what image
may have been injected vs one that was "hand" authored. From the a11y
point of view, that's the classic distinction without a difference.
