Hi all,

in an effort to break the inertia surrounding this document I have created
a dated WD snapshot:

http://rawgit.com/w3c/alt-techniques/c56027b5d9125b40695c7fbc128af918515273f7/index.html

It incorporates Janina's requests:
removal of details/summary advice
update reference to pint to HTML /TR

I have added links to outstanding bugs with special reference to those
about longdesc.

I also updated one example and closed the related bug [
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=25961], as I consider it
wholly uncontroversial and an improvement on the current example.

I consider once this WD is published the group(s) should swiftly appoint
new editor(s). I would suggest that any editors appointed have a good
working knowledge of alt techniques.

It is my understanding that both Shane McCarron and David McDonald have
volunteered and I personally have confidence that both of them working as a
team would serve as excellent replacements.
