The following consensus recommendation of the HTML A11Y Task Force (with 
objections ) is
hereby referred to the HTML Working Group pursuant to the Task Force
consensus procedures at:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/consensus-procedures.html

Recommendation: ISSUE-30 longdesc

RESOLUTION: While the HTML-A11Y Task Force prefers the proposal that
restores longdesc without warning we are prepared to accept the
alternative proposal at

to produce a warning (assuming we can agree to warning text)

A summary rationale together with pointers to additional information
considered by the Task Force in reaching this consensus can be found at:
