IMHO I think the best way of putting it is:

with alt text assume that the reader can't see the image, either because they actually can't or just choose not to. It's an /alternative/ to the image, therefore showing it in a tooltip, or expecting it to be, isn't really appropriate.

the title text is just that, a title. assume that the reader can see what you're referring to, but may not neccesarily understand what it is. It's in addition to the image (or some other element), and therefore showing it in a tooltip is appropriate.

Out of interest, is there a way to use CSS or something to get the title attribute rendered differently, i.e. as a caption of some sort?
