To associate a label with another control implicitly, the control

I'm quite familiar with the standard. My interpretation is that you can
use the explicit for/id method *or* the implicit method without the
for/id. Using both clearly confuses a certain browser near to our
hearts and is, IMHO, poorly written code.
Your interpretation appears wrong as there's nothing forbidding
combining the explicit with the implicit form, and I'm not aware of
browsers which "get confused" of such usage. Which browser gets
confused? Combining the explicit with the implicit form is at least
necessary as fallback to IE6 lack of implicit label support.
But we digress...
