Note the same section of the spec:

http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/rendering.html#links,-forms,-and-navigation

contains this expectation:

"User agents are expected to allow users to navigate browsing contexts
to the resources indicated by the cite attributes on q, blockquote,
ins, and del elements."

Would you agree the proposed "longdesc" expectation seems within the
same order of magnitude in terms of likely implementation outcomes?
