Forgive my ignorance since I am new to this group but I thought the goal
was to ensure that a test case existed for every guideline.  It seems to
me that the general test case below "labels should be positioned close
to the control" should be retained.

    Oggetto: [techs] test case reviews
    
    Hello,
    
    I was assigned the following test cases to review:
        * <http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test122.html>INPUT
element 
    LABEL, TYPE of "password", should be positioned close to control.
        * <http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test123.html>INPUT
element 
    LABEL, TYPE of "checkbox", should be positioned close to control.
        * <http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test124.html>INPUT
element 
    LABEL, TYPE of "file", should be positioned close to control.
        * <http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test125.html>INPUT
element 
    LABEL, TYPE of "radio", should be positioned close to control.
        * <http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test96.html>TEXTAREA
control 
    LABELs should be positioned close to control.
    These are related to WCAG 1.0 Checkpoint 10.2. Currently, the
related 
    technique is considered a "fallback technique" [1] in HTML
Techniques. 
    Plus, positioning shouldn't matter if labels are explicitly
associated with 
    controls.  Therefore, I don't think we need the technique except to
explain 
    the rationale for deprecating it to support the transition from WCAG
1.0 to 
    WCAG 2.0.
    
    I propose we delete all 5 of these tests.
