I'm going to give my feedback, but I want other's to answer first.
If someone knows THAT MUCH about specifications and the like, it it
impossible for them to click the 'HTML' button in the toolbar and
manually enter in the alt tag?

I'm really REALLY not a big fan of image manipulation menus, especially
for something as little an alt tag.

If they know these things, surely they know how to edit HTML.

On the flip side, if undefined, wordpress probably should populate the
alt tag with the title specified in the image uploader.
