" So with the new document, 4.1.2 and 3.3.2 success criterion, in a way, contradict each other. Part of me ask why list something that can be done.
but really should not be done?"

I don't think they do contradict each other do they? 4.2.2 requires that a thing has an accessible name, 3.2.2 requires that it has a visible label. You can meet both in one go using the <label> element, or you can meet them separately using the title attribute and a different visual label. It's just different ways to get to the same outcome.
