A text (or other nonvisual) description of a graphical element. This
is intended to be an alternative to the graphical presentation.

No, with that definition?
Almost contradicts (or expands on)
alt — A text-only annotation, often used for accessibility

If the description were made more general (perhaps with an accessibility
slant) then yes.

Would this cause confusion with 4.x users if changed to a more general
use from a graphics only?
