I know what you are asking. Although you call it baggage a lot of people working with ARIA have become accustomed to the concept of a name and a description. So, now we are going to confuse those people by switching to a label.

Let's decide not to confuse those people by leaving the terminology alone. I don't think "label" is significantly more explanatory, and "name/description" match the terms used in some accessibility APIs.
