I think we can all agree that the d-link has got to go. It's an ugly
that was used because the longdesc was not supported.

Roberto Scano:
I agree... this is an "hack" that must be removed.

Chris Ridpath:
It currently does serve a purpose but, with the longdesc getting more
support, it's becomming useless.
Do we dump it now or wait another year or two?
If kept for a short while, would it be a priority 3?

Roberto Scano:
Personally I suggest to remove from HTML techniques in WCAG 2.0.. and if
is possible to WCAG 1.0 Second Edition...
