Summary of Issue: Conflict between glossary definition of label and H65 sufficient technique for 3.3.2
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
The Normative definition for label clearly says "Note 1: A label is presented to all users whereas the name may be hidden and only exposed by assistive technology. In many (but not all) cases the name and the label are the same."  But there is a sufficient technique (H65) for 3.3.1 that allows title (or hidden labels) to be used.  BUT..this is in direct conflict with the definition of label. 

Proposed Change:
Remove H65 as a sufficient technique because it does not allow you to pass 3.3.1 (because it does not provide the label information for all users (only provides it for screen reader users).
