I'd also like to remind everyone of this important note from Jennifer at
Mozilla:

"I also want to note for those on this thread that Bug 877453 is for
design and
patch creation only - not discussion of the merits of longdesc generally.
Please only comment on that bug if you're involved in its implementation.
Thanks!"

I urge everyone to respect this request. Let's let Mozilla do what they said
they will do.

Cheers!

JF
