           Summary: longdesc and @role (ARIA)
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac System 9.x
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: xn--mlform-iua@xn--mlform-iua.no

To present an <img> with a longdesc the best way to AT users, what role should
this <img> have:
<img src=foo alt="Bar. Bas." longdesc="longdesc.html">

Does this make sence - if yes, are there cases when it does not make sense:
<img role="link img" src=foo alt="Bar. Bas." longdesc="longdesc.html">

What about a presentational image - this should probably be invalid, since
presentational images are ignored by AT users. (I guess @aria-describedby on
same imags, should also be invalid?)
<img role="presentation" src=foo alt="" longdesc="longdesc.html">
<img                                     src=foo alt=""

Are there other meaningful/unmeaningful roles when @longdesc is used?
