One NEW a11y bug reported. Details are in section 5.

A backlog of 58 a11y bugs on the HTML5 Spec await task force decision

15 total NEW a11y bugs existed on December 11, 2010. A December 11 bug
snapshot is at:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/Bugs/New_A11Y_Bug_Snapshot_20101211

Details are as follows.


1. WONTFIX BUGS:

1.1 Bug 10451: "Consider restricting the roles allowed for the label
element" reported by Maciej Stachowiak.
Reopened by Martin Kliehm per Comment:
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10451#c3
Ian then re-resolved it WONTFIX.
Ian's Rationale: "alert, log, marquee, status and timer make no sense
for <label>. presentation is already allowed. If this is to be handled
in an issue, then the bug should not be open."
