 Just removing the class has the problem that people currently styling that
 class will lose out.

 Also, These are hCard classes, see #8264 for where it was implemented.

 You could do something such as this if you care enough:
 add_filter('get_avatar', 'remove_photo_class');
 function remove_photo_class($avatar) {
     return str_replace(' photo', ' comment-photo', $avatar);
 (That is a wide-ranging replace there, but it's the most simplistic based
 on the fact ' photo' shouldn't be anywhere else in that string if you're
 using the default Gravatar avatar system)
