Hi Laura,

I don't quite understand why that change is a problem. It expresses
something that is already codified in ARIA and thus just brings it in
line with another W3C spec. Also, it has no direct relationship to the
longdesc issue, it just rectifies the use of aria-describedby with
hidden text. longdesc has a very different purpose to

Therefore, I don't see how this circumvented a WG process.
