Section 14.7 of  the HTML techniques for WCAG 2  [1] suggests that alternative accessible content should be given between start and end tags of the iframe element. The browser does not display this   content and nor is assistive technology  able to access it. (I tried  JAWS and WinEyes). 
So I guess  this technique  is not workable. 
The techniques advise against use of  longdesc which is ok. But there is need to recommend use of title attribute for iframe.
