Subject: Re: [office] Important question from Accessibility SC


Good question!

In terms of "textual description" I am not sure that reuse of draw:name, 
for example, would be appropriate. Those attributes already have 
legitimate uses and "reuse" might step on some of those uses.

With that in mind, I think adding an attribute would be the best way to 
handle this issue.

Hope you are having a great day!
