+1, replacing an image by a background is not
a good idea. BTW, with an IMG you can infer
size from the image file, something you can't
with a background.

It would be better to change the spec and modify
the behavior of the inset shadow applied on
replace elements like img's.

(BTW, it's a web author point of view, I'm not
browser implementer)

What about alt="" text, now that it's a background image? This feels
more like a hack, rather than a viable solution.
