I agree with Ungjin's original "expected behavior" and thank him for filing this bug. This is the feedback we received from our Quality Engineering PM, who is a full-time screen reader user...

"To me, a RADIO BUTTON and a CHECKBOX are two very unique HTML elements and all screen readers have specific protocols for how they are announced. Therefore, calling a control both a RADIO BUTTON and A CHECKBOX is confusing. When I hear RADIO BUTTON, I think of a "multiple choice" where a user picks only one from at least two choices. When I hear CHECKBOX, I think of a toggle where multiple boxes can be checked."
