#3219: Create a new thread form: Help text combined with labels

 I think users would receive a better experience if the descriptiveness of
 labels are improved in the form to create a new thread.

 Specifically this is regarding the "Version" label. There is information
 beneath it explaining what it means ("Select the version of WordPress you
 are using."), but I think there's no reason for that information not to be
 inside the label itself.

 For instance the label could be improved to "Select the version of
 WordPress you are using".

 Currently the help text is outside of the label and is not associated with
 ARIA, so it wouldn't be picked up by assistive technologies. However I
 wouldn't think this is a case where it's necessary to put text outside of
 the label.

 On a relating note, could there be a label added to the comment (textarea)
