With the core comment form the asterisk (*) is missing in the label for the comment.

The field is required, if you don't fill out the comment the error message "ERROR: please type a comment." is show. All the ARIA is correct (aria-required="true" required="required"). Only the * is missing in the label.

Attached patch adds to the label:

<span class="required">*</span>

Thank you for pointing me to #16206.
I would like to discuss this further from an accessibility point of view.
Required fields need to be indicated.
I agree that it's obvious, but if you use an asteriks do it consistent.

What would be the best option: open this ticket again or 16206?
