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

I'd like to write a counter proposal. The proposal would request that
the spec specifically points out that the ARIA spec already requires
that aria-describedby can point to rich content, including <a>-links.
The proposal would further make pointing aria attributes (including
aria-describedby) to elements that are "hidden" using the @hidden
attribute legal.

I should have time to write such a proposal before June 25th.
