If the intent of this SC is to enable an AT to concretely determine the 
purpose of qualifying controls, then we need to define the set of 
possible tokens. If we say that any token can be used providing it maps 
to the HTML tokens, we're creating a situation where the best an AT can 
do is use heuristics and guesswork to make the determination.
