I don"t quite see the point in removing the reference to 3.3.2 (labels or instructions) in H65 because that is exactly the Success Criterion that the technique relates to. The critical bit is the qualification in H65  "when the label element cannot be used". On longer forms (as pointed out by Paul) it is perfectly possible to use visible labels, so H65 does not qualify. Still, there are contexts where H65 will meet SC 3.3.2 so the reference should stay in place.
