           Summary: Programmatic association of a page element to a
                    'description' text in a different uri
           Product: HTML.next
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2

First of all, let me know if this is even feasible. If it is, this is how I see
it working:
Programmatically associate a control with a glossary term (brief description)
in a different uri. For example, a developer creates a page called
www.foo.gov/glossary.html and then ties a piece of text, say, 'glossary#1' to a
control in www.foo.gov/pagexyz.html. This could be helpful in numerous
situations:
1. Where the describedby text need not be visible on the same page.
2. When an image needs a description.
3. Link needs additional description.
4. Form control needs additional explanation.
5. When a superscript needs to be associated.
