Then maybe consider placing a time limit. Give the full idea (items
1-3*) ONE week to be completed. If it is not, we go with what we have.

Best Regards,
*1. The accessibility task force agrees and comes to consensus  that it
is the best way to help successfully reinstate longdesc into HTML; and

*2. If someone volunteers to draft solid use cases; and

*3. If someone volunteers to draft additions for the spec text and
those additions obtain task force consensus.
