IMHO repeating the "Scale" on the second line adds visual noise and
makes it harder to understand that the two entries belong together and
give access to two dimensions of the same control. Please don't let us
change this. A whole lot of thought went into this, it's used
consistently and there's no compelling reason to change it.
If screen readers need this info, we can certainly add a hint for them
using the ATK API.
