For the altXXX attributes, I have reported some bugs and submitted some 
proposals at the beginning of the year:

- Chrome: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=324764 
(and https://codereview.chromium.org/138383003)
- IE: 
https://connect.microsoft.com/IE/feedback/details/812595/add-some-css-rules-to-select-mathml-annotations-and-alttext

I only got the automatic reply "Thank you for your feedback. We will be 
investigating this issue further." from IE. For Chrome, the devs were 
concerned about performance impact of adding CSS rules so I submitted a 
restricted version that only implements the semantics fallback. I didn't 
get any other reply so far.

If anyone wants to push for this feature, please comment on these bug 
entries.
