Stop raising a validation warning if image with empty alt-text is added to an XhtmlString property

With EPiServer.CMS.TinyMce 4.0.0 it's added validation that throws a warning (see screenshot) if the alt-text property for an image inside an XhtmlSring (TinyMCE) is left empty.

I very strongly dislike this. It should be removed, or it should be possible to disable it from code/configuration.

- Adding an image without alt-text is not necessarily an error, if the image is for decoration purposes only.
- We can add that kind of validation ourselves, if we want it
- We are running a module where the alt-text is automatically populated from the image, if the alt-text is left empty in TinyMCE. This is ruining everything!

    Status is now Shipped.

    In what release is this added, and how can it be configured?

    Hello, we picked up on this feedback item in our slack channel too (but thank you for raising it here too, it's great to get votes from other users). We added a flag that you to disable the alt-text validation requirement. It's going through testing now and should be in the next release of the tinyMCE package.

    I agree with making this configurable in code. No validation rules should be enforced by default and NOT have an option to disable it.
