Janina and all,

In last week's accessibility task force teleconference minutes I noted
that you took an action to to draft a request for reconsideration of
HTML-ISSUE-30 longdesc. [1]

I have added some use cases to the longdesc research page [3] as the
Chairs' Decision [2] stated "The strongest argument against inclusion
was the lack of use cases that clearly and directly support this
specific feature of the language. "

If you think it would help the request to reopen the longdesc
decision, please feel free to use this use case information.

If anyone has ideas for improvement or suggestions for additional use
cases, please let me know.

Janina, last month I filed [4] bug 11447 on the decision policy
regarding the procedure for reopening an issue. It hasn't been
resolved yet. A resolution on that bug may help you with your action
item [5].

Best Regards,
