Ok, so the goal is to figure out a syntax that let's the author
easily/intuitively specify the alternate text (and we can more or less
ignore width/height for the easy/simple syntax).
If I go back to your original idea, it was something like:
Could we make it even simpler? Assuming that '"' aren't allowed in URIs
and my use of '=' below is ok in this context, how about this:
http://foo.bar/image.png=="some alternate text"
where the idea would be that the equal signs makes us think of the text as
something that's equal to the image. Anyway, just another wild idea ;-)

I was just teasing you ;-)
PS. I really like the [[table]]-directives btw.
