Would you consider a 'global' longdesc as 'akin to ARIA-describedAT'?

Janina just answered some such questions: It eems like ARIA-describedAT 
will happen in ARIA 2.0, and that it will be a pretty complicated 
feature, which possibly support more than a single URL and cater for 
multiple languages. [1] ARIA 1.1., which is supposed to become ready 
during 2013, is only for corrections and minor features.[2] To me, it 
thus looks like we need to leave the ARIA-describedAT, for HTML5.
