Though it still needs some work, note that this technique has already been
identified as deprecated in the latest draft of HTML Techniques [1].

One of the advantages of deprecating the technique (vs. removing it
completely) is that it gives us an opportunity to explain to authors why we
are no longer recommending the use of d-link. As we expand the information
in the techniques draft to include specific details about user agent support
for the longdesc attribute, this should help authors to understand which
technique or combination of techniques is appropriate and leaves the door
open for use of d-link when authors are specifically targeting support for
older user agents.
