Interesting question.  I would say that they were not intended to be
rendered together, since that is the usual behavior.   

Do you see any guideline that would be affected by this?

Subject: Longdesc (was Re: BIG ISSUE -- re Delivery Units)

If, in an HTML document called a.html I write:
<img src="something.png" alt="label" longdesc="b.html"> is b.html in the
same Web unit as a.html?
That is, are a.html and b.html intended to be "rendered together" or not?

Note that the HTML 4.01 specification doesn't prescribe how LONGDESC should
be handled by user agents.
