    If <label> elements use native platform conventions with regard to 
focus passing, and you have a <label> associated with an <object>, what 
is the focus passing behavior of the <label>? Either the UA has to 
assume a behavior or it has to have a means of getting the correct 
behavior from the program/plug-in that the <object> encapsulates. The 
problem with the former is that it could be a wrong assumption. The 
problem with the latter is that the plug-in might lie.
