I sent this letter only to the A11Y TF. Because I have consensus within 
the A11Y TF in mind. May be you should ask those in the A11Y TF that 
disagree with you, about whether what I outlined could be something 
they could consent to?

I could be wrong, but I think we will be the most successfull w.r.t. 
@longdesc for <img> if we use energy on ensuring that @longdesc for IMG 
and @aria-describedAT can harmonically co-exist. See the things I 
mentioned in the first letter with suggestions for the describedAT 
draft in that regard. Also, if one thinks that @aria-describedAT and 
@longdesc can co-exist, then one must accept that @aria-describedAT - 
and not @longdesc - is chosen in many cases.
