I agree with alan on this and would further encourage accessible authoring
by offering only accessible alternatives and requiring that one be used. In
other words, we should not allow no or bail out responses.

Some thoughts from Katie on authoring tool features from ATAG  that
would facilitate the creation of accessible content:
1. User prompts for accessible alternatives
2. User prompts for accessible document/content types (on save?)]
3. Providing a myraid of accessible-only CSS (XSLT, or whatever)
pre-authored (pre-loaded) stylesheets for authors to be prompted to choose
4. Providing a myraid of accessible-only tables, frames, skip navs, etc.
for authors to be prompted to choose from (when choosing to include those
items) in their content.
We should consider these in our discussion around authoring tools.,
