Re: Call for Consensus: Publish HTML Image Descriptions as Last Call

With no dissent, this call passes. We will therefore request the HTML and  
PF Working Groups to publish a Last Call of HTML Image Description  
Extension with a 60-day last call period. I will publish a new Editor's  
draft to go with the request, with a Status of the Document that clarifies  
the last call period, etc.

Cheers
