I feel this behaviour was kind of useful. On slow connections until the image loads you know by looking at the alt text what you are going to see.

Why do you remove this feature?

Because this is now expected behaviour for all web browsers.

I think keeping it shouldn't cause web compatibility issues or website breakage but I don't know much about this. You are the one to decide.
I feel we should keep this functionality based on "pure sense" if it doesn't break anything else.

Displaying the alt attribute while loading can and will break some layouts.
Alt is only there for accessibility anyway, not as a loading placeholder. That has never been its purpose.
