(1) The example above represent millions of images. Is it smart to let a
substantially less common usecase stand in the way of the most common usecase?

(2) http://malform.no/testing/longdesc/ARIA+anchor@rel=longdesc.html

(2a) Microformat with @rel="longesc" and <q cite="">

   <a href="long_description.html" rel="longdesc" title="Link to detail
description of The scream" >
      <q cite="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:The_Scream.jpg">
              <img src="file" alt="Munch’s The scream has some characteristic
colors and lines" />

(2b)  Microformat with @rel="longesc" and image maps
       <img src="*" alt="Lorem ipsum" 
                  usemap="#map" width="100" height="100" />
      <map id="map" name="map">
          <area href="bar" alt="Link text" shape="rect" coords="0,0,100,100" />
          <a href="long-desc.html" rel="longdesc">Optional link text</a>        

And so on and so forth.
