Good afternoon everyone,

I have read the change proposal many times as it evolved over the past few months. While attending the call was not possible for me today, I too feel it is stable and am ready to support it every portion of it.

For the record, I believe Laura has made an outstanding job putting this change proposal together and I cannot imagine the time and energy it must have took her. As someone who really wants longdesc to be a part of HTML5, I feel I owe her a whole lot having fought those battles I couldn't fight myself. So thank you (again) Laura for your constant dedication.

Best regards,
