A couple of other notes:

1. There is an implied principled reason (heuristic?) for choosing between label and labelledby. If the text for the label is already present as content in the document, use labelledby. If there is a need to not the text as content, then use label.

2. There is a related issue, 319 [1], about the presence of both aria-label and aria-labelledby.

The UAIG has now been rolled back to use the algorithm in the February draft. Some of the original errors have been corrected.

The UAIG now agrees with the spec that aria-label should be given precedence. David is reviewing it to ensure that the algorithm per the spec to ensure that everything else is in agreement.
