Hi Shelley,

I'm not saying describedby="" is longdesc="". I can't tell if it is or not. I'm
asking for a description of *how* describedby="" would work, hopefully one
sufficiently detailed so we can evaluate the extent to which it differs from
longdesc="".

A description of requirements isn't an answer to this question. I'm not asking
*what problem* describedby="" is intended to solve, I'm asking *how does it
solve it*. What are the mechanics by which describedby="" would function. Until
we have a sufficiently concrete proposal, it's impossible to evaluate the
merits of the proposed new attribute.
