--- Comment #4 from Michael[tm] Smith <mike@w3.org> ---
OK actually looking back at the spec, I see I misspoke.

http://www.w3.org/TR/html/forms.html#the-option-element

See the "Content model" section; this part:

> If the element has no label attribute: Text that is not inter-element whitespace.

That's just restating the same "If the [label] attribute is not specified, then
the element itself must not be empty." the spec had before.

So I'm re-resolving this as "worksforme".
