Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: I've limited <label> to no roles. I don't understand how any of the
roles listed make any sense. <label> is only supposed to be used to label form
controls. I couldn't find an appropriate role, but until recently I had just
left the elements without appropriate roles mostly unrestricted, and I missed
<label> when fixing that recently.
