Aeh...*no*, I didn't mention longdesc anywhere in my reply, did I?

I just adopted the terminology the thread starter used in the subject

This makes most of your points moot, as I know that longdesc can't
be used on A elements, isn't exposed to keyboard users, etc

We're in agreement here that longdesc can't be used.
