Your comment on ARIA1: Using the aria-describedby property to provide a
descriptive label ...:
> The technique's title is 'Using the aria-describedby property to provide
> a descriptive label for user interface controls'.
> But the intent  / objective is much wider and refers to 'descriptive
> info' for UI controls. 
> Proposed Change:
> Change title  for ARIA1 to:
> Using the aria-describedby property to associate related description for
> user interface controls'
> (Or 'detailed' in place of 'related').

Working Group Resolution (LC-2918):
Thank you for your comment.  

The working group does not feel that the title and the description are
inconsistent so will leave the title as it is currently.
