[whatwg] Proposal: Allow block content inside label element

The text that Windows places near check boxes and radio buttons corresponds
to INPUT[value], not to LABEL.
Internet Explorer redirects focus from labels to obey HTML 4; according to
HTML 5, it should stop. Should it really? And what should happen with
labels on HTML 4 pages? The user experience will be inconsistent.

For checkboxes and radio buttons, the text that Windows places near the
interactive widget both focuses and activates the control; in the case of
text fields, the text is static and has no behavior.
