Accessibility Enhancements to Settings API

I've only started working with the Settings API, but right off the bat I noticed two fairly major, but should be not too difficult to fix, accessibility issues.
1) The label/input field pairs are missing the HTML <label> tags that link the two.
Example: Field One <input id="field_one" name="field_one" type="text">
Should be rendered: <label for="field_one">Field One</label> <input id="field_one" name="field_one" type="text">
2) The settings pages themselves are laid out using a table. Tables should be reserved for tabular data, and not for page layout. CSS should be used for layout instead.
Thanks for your attention.
