Action completed.  Please see Proposal #1b at 
https://sites.google.com/site/wcag2ict/home/2-operable/24-provide-ways-to-help-users-navigate-find-content-and-determine-where-they-are/246-headings-and-labels 


The proposed note is:


          Note that in software UIs, labels include those static text
          components that label associated editable text fields (e.g.
          the static text component "Name:" to the left of an empty edit
          text field waiting for user input), and headings include those
          static text components connected to a group of related radio
          buttons or other groups of related user interface components
          (e.g. the static text component "Choose a color:" above the
          radio buttons "Red", "Green", and "Blue).  Platform
          accessibility services commonly provide a way to link labels
          to the user interface component(s) they are labeling, and to
          link headings to the group(s) of user interface components
          they are headings for.

Regards,

Peter
