Handling of this issue (and other issues) was covered by Plan 2014 [1] which was adopted by the HTML WG.  

See the following text:

	•30 longdesc attribute 

	Allow the A11y TF the authority to produce an extension spec that defines a longdesc attribute. If such a specification obtains consensus and meets the proposed CR exit criteria by 2014Q2 it could be folded back into the core HTML spec by that time. This can be combined with a solution for issue 203 and/or with work on a purported replacement.

	We ask those that oppose instating a longdesc attribute to focus on producing a better solution, and meanwhile not oppose those that wish to pursue longdesc via an extension spec or making progress towards demonstrating that it meets the identified CR exit criteria.

This call for consensus seems contrary to the decision of the working group in http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2010Aug/att-0112/issue-30-decision.html


Has that decision been rescinded or reopened?
