I am happy to say that in the latest round of testing:
http://www.html5accessibility.com/tests/form-labels.html
All major browsers (except Opera) tested now support both methods robustly and
as Opera does not have practical support for assistive technology on any
platform, its lack of support can be discounted.

so closing the bug.
