I think it  would be useful on all _elements_.  (if implemented  
visually the way I want )

For example imagine a photo gallery management app where you can drag  
and drop images to rearrange them.
Each image is in a div and the top of each div is styled to have a  
thick blue top border (like the top of a Windows® window, the part you  
use to move the window).

The title and alt of the image would be its user supplied caption. The  
image's longdesc (big tooltip) could give instructions about what  
happens if the user double clicks the image itself and the longdesc of  
the draggable div would explain how to drag and drop them to rearrange  
the images and how to ctrl+click to select more than one at a time.
