Yes, I have thought about it from time to time.

Having a browser that supports longdesc (iCab) it doesn't seem to be a hassle
- iCab provides access to the longdesc via a context menu (similar to the way
it can take me to the referenced page when there is a cite attribute)

  Anyone got any thoughts?
