Hi Martin,

Thanks so very much for your email.

Steve provided rationale for aria-labelledby on Saturday.
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2010Jul/0038.html
And I added it:
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/ImgElement20090126#HTML5_Should_Provide_for_New_and_Better_Text_Alternative_Features

Steve objected to aria-label so I removed it. (aria-label had only
been added provisionally after the task force vote).

If you see any way that the proposal can be improved, please let me know.

Best Regards,
Laura
