ISSUE-30: longdesc - Chairs Solicit Alternate Proposals or Counter-Proposals

From: Sam Ruby <rubys@intertwingly.net>

Message-ID: <4B4E01A7.4010802@intertwingly.net>
To: HTML WG <public-html@w3.org>

The current status for this issue:

- HTML4 had a longdesc attribute defined for the img element.  The 
current Working Group draft does not.

http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/struct/objects.html#adef-longdesc-IMG
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/text-level-semantics.html#the-img-element

- We have a Change Proposal to reintroduce this attribute:

http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/ChangeProposals/longdesc

The current draft was produced before we instituted the current process 
requiring rationale in commit messages, so if there are anybody who 
prefers the draft as it is (or even wants to make a different Change 
Proposal), what we need is a Change Proposal (possibly with "zero edits" 
as the Proposal Details), but with similar level of detail in the other 
sections to what Manu produced.

In addition, at this time the Chairs would also like to solicit 
alternate Change Proposals, in case anyone would like to advocate a 
different change than the specific one in the existing Change Proposal.

If no counter-proposals or alternate proposals are received by February 
14th, 2010, we proceed with a Call for Consensus on Charles's Change 
Proposal.
