Hi,

I published  
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/html-proposals/raw-file/b63325998cc1/longdesc1/longdesc.html  
- an extension proposal for HTMl5.

Te idea of this is to complete an extension specification as fast as  
possible with minimum fuss. So it merely reincorporates the longdesc  
attribute of HTML4 for the image element, as implemented. In order to be  
nice to the world, it doesn't make normative requirements on user agents'  
behaviour, just "should" statements.

cheers

Chaals
