A couple of questions/issues:

1. Shouldn't we allow dynamic HTML (host language) values?

It seems that right now, the values but be entirely static unless they are
specified as an attribute.

2. "Unless otherwise stated, a control must have a label element or
attribute, or otherwise be bound to a node that has a label property."

What is the consequence of not doing so?

One issue is that, with a label in the view, you can statically tell that
the label is missing. (I am not sure that we say what the consequence is in
the case either, by the way.)

While with the indirection via a node binding and a MIP, it is not possible
to know whether the label is missing in all cases without actually running
the form, and that condition can change over time, if the control binds to
a different node, for example.
