I reviewed the MiniApp Manifest specification. The issue is that the label for the icon for the app is listed as optional. However, the Image Resource specification that MiniApps is using for the icon information does NOT list the label as optional and provides accessibility considerations. I drafted the following comment to indicate that the label must not be optional. My question is whether we should further request that the miniapps specification explicitly encourages implementors to reference the Images Resoures specification for accessibility guidance. The Image Resources specification is referenced and linked within the section where label is mentioned.

The Accessible Platform Architectures (APA) working group reviewed the MiniApp Manifest specification (https://www.w3.org/TR/miniapp-manifest/). 
Section 1.4.2 Icons Member (https://www.w3.org/TR/miniapp-manifest/#icons-member) indicates that the icons member is an array of Image resource objects and lists the members. The MiniApps specification refers to the label member as optional. Following the links to the Image Resource specification (https://www.w3.org/TR/image-resource/) it does not list the label as optional and provides accessibility considerations and guidance. Thus, we believe that the miniapps specification must not list the label as optional and should match the referenced Image Resource specification.
