Well, actually a lot of them are from following User Agent Accessibility
Guidelines (despite teh fact that is only a draft at the moment, it is
reasonably stable and a lot of the general principles are clear).

This also implements features in Jaws that have long been available in other
browsers, but designers have not made use of in coding because of a
perception that nearly all accessibility is about people who are blind, and
nearly all those people use jaws, and getting that far is near enough...

(to fairly brutally over-simplify the case)

But the improvements look like very good ones. And I guess that helps answer
Charles Munat's question about how widely longdesc is implemented.

cheers
