WCAG feedback on HTML5 requirements for providing text to act as an alternative for images

Dear HTML5 A11y TF,

Thank you for your request on Image alternative advice.[1]

It is important that your advice meets SC 1.1.1 and SC 2.4.4. It appears 
all the versions you are considering do so. The WCAG WG does not wish to 
constrain your best practices development as long as it continues to 
satisfy the relevant SC. The document should clarify however that 
patterns other than its best practices can also meet WCAG.
