Other question: What does that have to do with the topic? :-)

I noted that in the audit, too, don't you worry. The answer is the same
as with every large CMS driven project: Laziness of the content editors
(no provided alternative text) and auto generation by the CMS. Not very
usefull, and IHMO there is no need for these images to be content anyway.
