Hi Laura

Thanks for posting this update to the email. I really was curious as to 
what is happening with longdesc.

I am amazed at how much effort has had to be expended to keep longdesc, 
as compared to how little effort people put in to remove, and the modify 
<time> and add <data>. The process seems incredibly skewed and not 

Ah well. Hopefully this issue is resolved soon.

Best regards,
