Summary: {{DEFAULTALT:}} tag
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Page rendering

[[Wikipedia:Alternative text for images]] says that "alt" attributes of images
should be used to emphasize the their most important visual aspects. Since
there's no syntax to change image contents (eg. crop) in rendering, the same
image on every page looks the same, but we have to repeat the description of
how it looks on every page.

I suggest a {{DEFAULTALT:}} tag in image description pages. The content in it
will be used for the image as its "alt" attribute on every page, and can be
overridden by ...|alt=|... syntax.
