Ugh, I'm really sorry to send this so late, but here is my change proposal.

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/DeprecateLongdesc

I'll likely tweak it a bit over the weekend and I'd love to get help
from anyone who's willing to. In particular I'd like to add a section
showing how to use aria-describedby to get the various behaviors that
people have been bringing up in use cases.
