It's about the fact that some HTML element interfaces already have a "label"
attribute but HTML5 is adding a "label" attribute on HTMLElement.  The question
then arises whether that "label" is compatible with the preexisting ones and if
not why not and if so why we need the attributes on the derived interfaces.

As in, my concerns in comment 8 are very non-hypothetical.  Feet are being shot
off right as we speak.  ;)
