In fact it is possible currently to use longdesc to refer to any URI. I am
not sure if you can have multiple longdescs for a single element, but using
Xlink would allow that.

  Hi Folks,
  
  This use of audio files begins to move into the realm of the Synchronized
  Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) This is a W3C recommendation. This
  is also the technique the DAISY Consortium (http://www.daisy.org) is using
  for development of Digital Talking Books.
  
   The .wav file is very large, but various compression techniques can reduce
  the size (mpeg, Realaudio) and these files could also be streamed.
