Excellent news!

I look forward to contributing to the development of the alt techniques
document as a WG memmber. I  also imagine that there will be collaboration
in the future as I continue to develop the alt techniques in HTML 5.1. I
will be looking to the new content in the alt techniques document as
material to draw from to expand advice in HTML on longer description
techniques (including longdesc).
