That's an odd approach. The HTML5 checker already issues far too many 
messages, and informing about implementation status is rather pointless, 
especially as regards to attributes.

*If* an attribute were part of the draft specification, then it should 
be quite OK to use it, even if it is not supported yet. It would express 
an author's suggestion of using alternate images under some conditions.
