after an hour of forensics...1.11.1 was removed at the Nov 2010 F2F.
the current wording appeared in the 25 May 2011 draft as 1.11.2
complete with IER. It has remained unchanged since that time. At some
time (I didn't bother to check) it was moved to 1.11.1 because it is
Level A.

the current 1.11.2 Extended Link info had some discussion and Kelly
was to have an action, but Zakim would not allow him to have actions
at that time (Nov 2010). He may have additional comments.

I propose closing Action-467.
Pass judgement on the current 1.11.1. Current browser behavior
includes form controls but not table cell associations. There is an
extension for FF that add the feature for table cells (Firefox
Accessibility Extension http://firefox.cita.illinois.edu/)

current 1.11.1 Access Relationships:The user can access
explicitly-defined relationships based on the user's position in
content (e.g., show form control's label, show label's form control,
show a cell's table headers). (Level A)

see if Kelly has anything to say about 1.11.2, make a decision.

and finally mark 1.11 as done.
