 Thanks for the report!

 Yes, that input needs a label, though it should describe the input better
 than the base URL does. "Custom Permalink Structure Tags" is one option,
 and I welcome other ideas.

 There are a few other considerations on this screen:
 - The radio buttons could have `aria-describedby` values connecting each
 to its example URL.
 - The radio button labels still wrap both the input and text (not
 separated, using `id` and `for`).
 - "Available tags:" could be a `legend` for a `fieldset` to group the
 related buttons.
 - I would like to wrap the custom text input plus its (probably non-
 visual) label and base URL within a `<span class="code"></div>` for better
 RTL support, which might fit well with #47755 instead.
 - When navigating by keyboard, editing the custom input value ''on
 changing'' the radio buttons can cause problems. This JS issue can be on
 its own ticket; I'm not sure about the others.
