Longer term the idea is to use the personalisation semantics, which is to one side of ARIA:

<input type="text" name="fname" aui-field="phone"/>

But that’s hot off the press (13th Feb), not sure about support yet.

Yeah - thanks Alastair and David. Good feedback both.
The reason I ask is that a lot of people will think that they can add just add ARIA to satisfy this SC
and in some cases, as David mentions for inputs, it may be doable but in others not.

Good catch both about the AccName and the label - and we don't want that to be overridden etc.

IMO We'll need to be clear in our materials about where ARIA anti-patterns would not satisfy this SC.
