Comment (by joemcgill):

 As discussed with @joedolson earlier this week, while I am 100% behind the
 intent of this change, I don't think that adding additional attributes to
 `wp_get_attachment_image_src()` is the right approach.

 Instead, I think we should look into creating a new function that reuses
 the internals of `wp_get_attachement_image()` but returns the attributes
 as an array of values. Possibly something like
 `wp_get_attachment_image_data()` or `wp_get_attachment_image_atts()`. We
 can then make `wp_get_attachment_image()` a wrapper function that converts
 the output to HTML.

 Additionally, it might be helpful to have a helper function like
 `wp_get_attachment_image_alt()` that can be used as a standard way of
 generating an `alt` attribute when someone is rolling their own image
