           Summary: draggable and dropzone regions require labels

There is, in the dnd API spec, no method of associating a textual label with
@draggable
and @dropzone elements.  This can obviously be done with aria-label,
aria-labelledby, or <label for="idref">. Should this be part of the API spec? 
It
is essential for accessibility that drag and drop targets have a textual label
associated in order to conform with WCAG 2.0.

I suggest that text be added to the API directing implementers how to provide
accessible names for draggable and dropzone regions.
