"Some" of what can be done exactly?  Could you provide an example of how 
you would do such binding (<label for="id">) with use of selectors? 
Existing or any hypothetical ones - it does not matter.

This particular behavior (<label for="id">) is so basic that it has to 
be perfectly safe and always available. With JS or without it.
