For all the other Mac applications (except Xquartz) Alt is used to compose characters that are not by default in the keyboard layout. That's one of the very strong point of OSX machines by the way. On a standard JIS keyboard I can type French without having to change the layout, or English, or Japanese, out of the box.
The default for Emacs on Mac should be the OS default so that new users who are used to that behavior do not have to search for the Emacs way to use their keyboard the standard way...
