EOWG participants,

There are images in the Process Intro/"101" at:
	http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/w3c-process
The images are versions of documents in the ordered list after "W3C Recommendation are listed below".

Visually these images reinforce and illustrate the text. The question is: what is their value non-visually, and thus what should their alt text be? These images do not clearly present additional information, nor are they purely decorative.

What are your thoughts on providing descriptive alt text such as is there now, or null alt text?

Best,
~Shawn
