That image tag is a hidden placeholder in the Customizer preview when no logo is chosen. There is no src attribute for it either.

While the attribute would be unnecessary, I like the idea of adding it anyway.

Just tested the patch: it applies well against trunk, it looks good to me and it doesn't introduces any bad behavior in the customizer. Marking this for commit.

In 49949:

Accessibility: Customize: Add an empty alt attribute to the <img> tag used as a hidden placeholder in the Customizer preview when no logo is chosen.

Per accessibility best practices, it is recommended that all HTML <img> elements have an alt attribute. Any decorative images should have an empty alt attribute (alt="").

Props laxman-prajapati, sabernhardt, audrasjb.
Fixes #51846.
