--- Comment #4 from Cynthia Shelly <cyns@microsoft.com> ---
The text is still there, and is still confusing.  In the example, the following
markup is used
<label><input type=checkbox name=lost> Lost</label>

The <input> is a child of the <label>.  The text in the example says that the
input would be activated or focused, depending on platform convention.  <input>
is an interactive element, so this contradicts the sentence in the paragraph
above.

Suggest re-wording to:
The label element's exact default presentation and behavior, in particular what
its activation behavior might be, if anything, should match the platform's
label behavior. The activation behavior of a label element for events targeted
at <del>interactive content</del><ins>hyperlink</ins> descendants of a label
element, and any descendants of those <del>interactive
content</del><ins>hyperlink</ins> descendants, must be to do nothing.
