It does not apply to <video>, <iframe> or <embed>, as the closest equivalents
to those do not normally have labels in native UI. I think it would equally
apply to <meter>. I don't know enough about the intended rendering and use of
<output> to be sure, but it probably does need to be labeled.

aria-labeledby would work OK, however, and is not materially different from
using <label> for elements that do not take focus or react to clicks. I'm happy
to withdraw the request if you think it's ok to have that be the recommended
approach for particular built-in controls. If that's your position, feel free
to mark WONTFIX.

Reopening for further disposition.
