I'm okay with there being no tooltip. As for the accessible name, I
personally think it should match whatever word(s) we use to describe it
when talking about it (to end users) and in documentation. In other
words, if you wanted me to click on that thing, you'd probably tell me
something like, "Click on the foo button." In which case the accessible
name should be "foo."

Funny. The docs team always says that what we call it should match its
accessible name. Somebody's going to have to decide what to call the
thing. We haven't been able to make a decision.
