Enabling validators to programmatically detect improper URIs would help make
longdesc more robust. More people use the W3C validator than read the specs. It
has been said that the W3C HTML4 validator has done worlds more than the HTML4
specification for increasing the quality of HTML documents on the web.

Requiring longdesc link checking would also aid in accessibility education.

It would create a teachable moment.
