It seems this fix has gone a bit too far.  Try the following HTML fragment:

  <object data="w3c_home.png" type="image/png">
    <object data="w3c_home.gif" type="image/gif">
      <img src="w3c_home" alt="W3C">

Amaya 8.7 complains like

  line n, char n: Default mandatory attribute "alt" added

against *object* elements, but "alt" is not a valid attribute for object.
