2.4.5: This should be at Level 1. Descriptions, headings, labels etc are
very important for both people who use screen readers and people with
cognitive disabilities. Equivalent checkpoints in WCAG 1.0 are at Level AA

Proposed Change:

Move to Level 1

Response from Working Group:

We have added "descriptive" to SC 2.4.2 (formerly 2.4.3) and moved it to
level A.

SC 2.4.6 (formerly 2.4.5) has been moved to Level AA. It addresses
descriptive headings and labels, which may need to be understood in context.
While headings may not have sufficient descriptive power in isolation, when
viewed in the context of a structured document, they do have sufficient
descriptive power.
Response from GSW:
Thank you for addressing my comment
