This is used in title();
String ariaLabel = ariaLabeledByAttribute(); 

I think we need to re-organize what goes into title vs. description. I think we need to rename title to accessibilityName and use accessibilityDescription for aria-describedby

But that's a big job. You should remove the call in ::title() so that it's only in ariaAXDescription.

I'd guess you'd have some Mac test failures with this. I also suspect these test won't pass on GTK and Win, since they probably return different prefixes for title and description.
