Just an observation, but the current status of ISSUE-30 longdesc is that 
this was already reopened, and that people are actively working on 
improving the Change Proposal.

As to ISSUE-32 table-summary and ISSUE-142 poster-alt, I encourage 
everybody to read the "Revisiting this Issue" sections in both decisions:


It is my opinion that any request for an expedited review without 
providing this information would be unlikely to receive serious 
consideration by the Director, but I recognize that that is just my opinion.

On the other hand, I can speak authoritatively on this: providing the 
information that the chairs requested, if found to be complete, would 
result in the issue being reopened, and no FO would be necessary.
