 I vote for Null as the images do not provide any additional value.

Subject: Image alt in WAI process intro

EOWG participants,

There are images in the Process Intro/"101" at:
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?
