For accessible name / description calculation under 5.1 Input type="text" or textarea element the suggested order is aria-labelledby, aria-label, placeholder, then the host language's placeholder, label element and title
attributes Comment-1: The INPUT type=text / textarea are host language constructs. So I find it odd that aria-attributes should take precedence unless there is a role attribute that is present that changes the role declared by the host language.
Comment-2: Having stated the above order of precedence, it goes on to say that when only placeholder and label are present, the label takes precedence and should be considered to calculate accessible name. Then why does placeholder precede label element in the above order beginning
with aria attributes?
I created a bug and have part fixed and responded to your comments
