Thinking about this push to increase by requesting image descriptions. I mean, that must be a trade-off, right? On the losing side are those who have difficulties with writing. Their accessibility certainly decreases, if image descriptions are obligatory.

This is true and has been pointed out by some who are disabled in various ways. Extreme pressure to add them isn't a great idea. What can help is offering to help write them even if it's in the replies, or even beforehand. I've put that offer out for friends before. Friendly collaboration can make it work!
