In the Accessibility Toolkit (ATK), there is something called Accessible
Relation - a way to build relationships between widgets (you can choose what
widgets and what their relationship is).  Perhaps this would be a good
application of that encoding - that these buttons have a "member of"
relationship with the dialog, or are "controllers for" the dialog (or perhaps we
should introduce some new relationship type).
