Thanks, Dr. Magennis.

While it isn't exactly a typo, it would be more accurate and clear if
the note referred to Success Criterion 4.1.2, rather than Guideline
4.1. Success Criterion 4.1.2 requires that user interface components
have a name, role, state, property and value. This is closely related
to the requirements that SC 1.1.1 places on user interface controls to
have a name that describes its purpose.

Unfortunately, since the Guidelines are now published, we can't change
it to the more accurate SC 4.1.2 reference.

We will include it as an errata comment.
