JN: I believe this is no different from 
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/Using_aria-labelledby_to_concatenate_a_label_from_several_text_nodes#Example_2:_A_simple_data_table_with_text_inputs

Is there anything I am missing that the example in the current technique 
doesn't have?

JN: We certainly need a role=group technique to cover this use case. 
Would someone like to volunteer to write this?

JN: I think this example needs modification and then could fit nicely 
into the Using aria-labelledby to concatencate multiple text nodes case. 
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/Using_aria-labelledby_to_concatenate_a_label_from_several_text_nodes#Example_2:_A_simple_data_table_with_text_inputs>
As it stands there is no indication to AT that checking the checkbox 
does a compare operation so the labelledby needs to point to the header 
and the checkbox label and not just the header.
