"New information" is too vague. Given the strong opinion that some HTML WG Members have on hard data, I would encourage the proponent of longdesc attribute to collect these data.

* How many and which authoring tools give a UI for editing longdesc?
* How many and which CMSes give a UI for editing longdesc?
* How many and which search engines use and/or associate longdesc to the original document it has been linked from?
* How many and which assistive technologies are using longdesc (full browser, OS level, plugin, etc.)?

This information would create raw materials helping the discussion.
