Thanks to everyone for your input.

A couple of comments:

* I am open to changing the attribute's name from describedby to something
else. Perhaps it could be called "closeddescription" or "cdescription" or
"closeddesc" or "cdesc"(invisible by default like a television closed-caption
but can be opened via the user agent).

* My Research so far on Longdesc Examples In the Wild:
