1) Inaccessible for visually impaired: There's no link text to be read. (The inner span has display: none;.)
2) Inaccessible even for common users: If images are off, noone can spot "(un)watch" tab. Again, there's no text to fallback.
If the image wasn't a background image, but a real <img> tag, the alt attribute could be used.
For me using VoiceOver, the title attribute of the watchlist item is spoken btw. I am told:
ting (audio indicating a link), then "Add this page to your watchlist [w]", I'm guessing we don't really need feedback to pronounce the current status of the watchtlist, if we already have the link to give feedback.
Oh, and r69317 removes the "display:none" from the watch span it seems. At least from what I can see on the prototype. Is that any better ?
I would say that this bug is indeed fixed with the revision Derk-Jan posted. Danny can you cross-check please?
I can confirm this is still a problem: until recently my mobile provider heavily compressed data, which sometimes led to failure in displaying of images. In such an event the watch tab was not displayed. I'll look into this.

The watchlist tab is accessible with Orca 3.2 Screenreader and Firefox 18 on Fedora - it's read.
It's still valid that nothing is displayed instead of the star when loading images is switched off, hence updating summary.
With regard to comment 5, for general issues with loading images please file a separate report.
