Missing alt should not be considered conforming in the presence of figcaptions over 50 words in length

State:
CLOSED
Product:
HTML 5 spec
Raised by:
Sam Ruby
Opened on:
2012-01-16
Description:
This issue was raised on behalf of Janina Sajka and https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=13651 :

While clearly arbitrary as to the particular number of
words, fig-captions of greater length are reliably not acceptable alternatives
for missing alt, where fig-captions of but a few words generally are.
