I'm not sure what you're getting at here.  Are you saying that longdesc
attributes should not be used, because there is not AT support?  Or are
you going to claim you are not asking leading questions, and you really
do desire to know information on longdesc?

I guess mainly this post is about how I don't like Mr. Munat's method
of attack and debate, rather than anything else.  Someone who is more
expert in AT is free to answer the questions of why and how assistive
technologies comply with the W3C HTML 4.01 (et al) specifications.
