The techniques doc notes for H85:
The optgroup element is not widely supported by screen readers.
The label attribute for option and optgroup is supported inconsistently
across user agents and is not widely supported by assistive technologies.

Why include it as a sufficient technique then for 1.3.1? 
It is confusing because it is not AT supported.
ARIA techniques too are excluded from sufficient techniques for the same
reason, right?
