Thanks for the quick and comprehensive reply, Liam.

Personally I don't see why we would have to wait for the Recommendation - surely we could do this when we get longdesc out of CR to PR.

But in any case do we actually have the proposed changes for any longdesc related material ready to go?  Or are there bugs to identify exactly where the material should go?  Surely, there is no reason to hold up this kind of work.

We agreed last week not to publish it (not even a heartbeat) until after the longdesc Rec.

I've (as agreed last week) reverted the changes that made it a draft WG Note, and also added an explicit note in the status section that it's expected to become a Note in the future (i.e. it's not on Rec track).

I also volunteered to become a co-editor of it, which, as I understand it, would need a CfC from the task force, but woudl let us move forward with it fairly quickly after longdesc is done.
