| Andrew,
|
| There is also the <label> that is a child of all form controls, as defined
| by XForms which XHTML 2 'imports'.

Oh, yeh, thanks a lot Mark.

This is an effect of spec modularization - looking on definition of some entitiy
you never know is it redefined somewhere else.

Anyway:
"This required element labels the containing form control with a descriptive 
label. Additionally, the label makes it possible for someone who can't see the 
form control to obtain a short description while navigating between form 
controls." (Label. XForms 1.0)

But again this is a different "label".  It has no this fancy "for".
So it has no mentioned problem of matching indirect IDs in CSS.
