The way graphical browsers on Windows treat <label> is analgous to the way 
most "static controls" (Windows parlance for plain text on a window) react in 
that if you click on them they affect the related input control. This 
isn't "extreme", it's basic usability in mirroring what users are used to from 
their OS (hopefully similar claims can be made about <label> and other 
platforms).
