A lot of "label versus title" is to do with people trying to achieve token
compliance to legislation (unfortunately they wouldn't even try this without
the legislation, so the legislation has to have objective criteria, like
"include a label for every....".

You look to be in the UK, and our legislation is extremely subjective.
On the other hand, it probably only exists to comply with EEC directives,
so enforcement will probably be grossly understaffed.

On other points, whether or not disabled form a significant (normally
defined as > 20%) part of the market doesn't matter for a web designer
if their employer/client is not convinced of it.
