I take the liberty to offer some comments:

* Looking at the URL of the CP: Please note that you have full 
opportunity,  in the Wiki, to move to a more relevant page address - 
DeprecateLongdesc is just weird.

* Looking at the text: Please note that you have submitted a CP 
relating to @hidden and not to @longdesc. Hence it is weird to find 
text snippets like this:

]] The aria-describedby attribute designed by WAI has several 
advantages over the longdesc attribute. The first one is that it is 
much more generic than longdesc [[

We also find a section on 'Reasons for deprecating longdesc' ...

As the CP notes, the chairs has split the issue ... But the entire CP 
appears as a CP for another issue.
