For the record, I think multiple labels should be allowed even though not
well supported today. Like using both Label element and title attribute on
one control, multiple labels for one control should be discouraged but
allowed!

It looks like we have agreement that TITLE attribute and explicit LABEL are
allowed. But, as Michael noted, there is still the outstanding issue of
whether we should permit multiple labels.

I'll modify the tests below so they accept either TITLE or an explicit LABEL
so we can move on quickly. Let's solve the issue of allowing multiple labels
a bit later (unless you think it can be resolved now).
