FWIW, I thought we were going to build on longdesc by taking its 
architecture and refining the user experience. Is this still the plan? 
I'd like to know.

I also think that whether it's this element, an ARIA element or SHE 
(Shiney-new-element) - a large part of the problem is on the human side. 
That is to say getting authors to use whatever the long descriptor 
mechanism is going to be.
