Um, that's not really my approach to this problem at all.  I  
suggested more research was required before making any changes, not  
more hypothetical markup to support a predetermined conclusion.  And  
I suggested more research because I suspect that "red ball" section  
was included in the HTML spec specifically as a result of many  
publishers using such alt values, which aren't really content.  I  
prefer to follow the semantics defined in the spec, but I do not  
think we should do that with complete disregard to how people  
actually use HTML.
