Ok, so cases:

[[File:image|alt=|link=|caption]]

Thumb
* normal link target
** default: empty <img> alt attribute, requires <a> title attribute
("Description page of Filename" ????)
** alt= explicitly sets an alt text
* (explicit link target is not possible/allowed in thumbs currently. Bug 17398)

Framed
* normal link target
** default: <img> alt attribute is the caption, <a> title attribute
("Description page of Filename" ????)
** alt= explicitly set an alt text (possibly empty value)
* (explicit link target is not possible/allowed in frames currently. Bug 17398)

frameless
* normal link target
** default: <img> alt attribute is the caption, <a> title attribute
("Description page of Filename" ????)
** alt= explicitly set an alt text (possibly empty value)
* explicitly set link target (Likely navigational element)
** default: <img> alt attribute is the caption, use the caption for the <a>
title attribute.
** alt= explicitly set an alt text (possibly empty value)
* NO link (link=) (Likely decorative)
** default <img> alt attribute == caption, no title attribute
** alt= explicitly set an alt text (possibly empty value)

Or do you want a default of no alt for link=explicit elements ? (I thought we
recently changed this around)

This isn't so different from the current setup I think. Should be easy to fix.
I note that most problems from content here are probably an issue of authors
not knowing what syntax to use at what times, less a bug in the software.

Other issues are using decorative/navigational images that require attribution,
under our current Attribution policies, such images require links to their
description pages when used. The English wikipedia for that reason is trying to
use as many public domain images for decorative and navigational links as
possible. Not sure what the status is of skin images, and likely the WikiEditor
needs quite some work.
