I think the main problem with multiple IDs for labels is the usability.
How would it work and still make sense?
You could, instead, have <label><input type="text" value="82" title="John
Smith's Home Work 1"></label>, etc. Assuming research is correct, this
ought to work. I had originally put the title on the label, but the link
I provided suggests it wouldn't be read.
Also combining that with proper table markup should allow for an
accessible solution for both assistive technologies and sighted users.
