Something obvious hear

for links: we can save content authors a lot of time if we  attach the
type of content to the page, not the link to the page.

E.g. page level in meta data like
<meta name= pageType content="UB:siteMap">

(sorry Liddy - i havn't looked up how to do this legally)

 It can then be programmatically derived that any link to this page is a
link to the site map. alternatively you can do it as a site wide
annotation (SWAP again) 

Much quicker and easer then adding access keys or defining types of
links at each usage.

Now why can't we attach DC metadata title  and description  onto all
image files in place of filling in an alt and longdesc when ever the
images are used. (alt can override the meta title if the web author is
using an image/media in a different way to how the graphic artist
anticipated the image being used)

That is why we need to design accessibility solutions from an
architectural level, and not from the html content symptom solving thing

Keep well all
