You might also consider using the longdesc attribute of the img tag.
This attribute takes a URI which points to a resource containing the
long description of an image.  You might consider putting any metadata
about the image in this longdesc resource along with the long
description itself.  This method, however, is only relevant to image
tags and is not a catch-all for any old resource.
