Your comment on ARIA7: Using aria-labelledby for link purpose:
> While the aria-describedby (ARIA1) test procedure  actually describes
> how the attribute can be used to satisfy certain SC by providing
> additional contextual info, the test procedure 
> for aria-labelledby (ARIA7) does not do this and only tests for
> correctness of id values. 
> Current:
> Check that each ID in the value of the aria-labelledby attribute matches

> Proposed Change:
> Add: The Text referenced by the aria-labelled attribute adequately

> purpose.

Working Group Resolution (LC-2920):
Thank you for your comment.  The working group agrees that an additional
step in the test procedure is needed.

We will add step #2:
Check that the combined value of the text referenced by the one or more
ID's in the aria-labelledby attribute properly describes the purpose of the
link element.

This change will appear in the next public review draft.
