Question on a potential edge case - I'm not sure this a fail if the 
visual label is abbreviated but still comprehensible and following an 
established convention? [1]

Accessible matches Visible. The visible and accessible name of a label 

https://www.wikipedia.org => Search field has language dropdown with 
text "EN" but has name "English" (or other language when selected)
