   One of the deficiencies of the DocBook Graphic element is that
   there is no way to specify an alternate text description of the
   graphic. This has been rectified by the introduction of MediaObject


   In DocBook V5.0, MediaObject will replace Graphic.

I did not look at MediaObject in detail, but hopefully this will
give you a place to start looking.
