PDF Validator Failures?

Whenever I check PDFs using Commonlook, I always get the following errors about link annotation.

"Parent tag of Link annotation doesn't define the Alt attribute." "Link Annotation doesn't define the Contents attribute."

I can fix this fairly easily. But as long as the link is descriptive text, what practical consequence does this have? The descriptive link seems to read in JAWS and NVDA just fine without ALT on the annotation.
