Some notes re accessibility from a recent meeting with Gerardo Capiel:

* Long-term we should try to store the alt text or long description along with
the image itself, and use that to populate the alt attribute if none was
provided explicitly. This requires significant work in core to store metadata
along with image pages.

* For screenreaders it would be good to also provide a longdesc attribute
linking to the textual description on the image page.
