Well, they *are* text labels but clickable - a lot of custom controls
are based on the label control so I'm not sure why JAWS can't figure
this out properly.

Well, that's certainly possible. But that's not really renaming the
class but creating a completely new window class and borrowing most of
the original data from the original window class.
This only works if the original windowproc function never uses the class
name for e.g. checks about what to do. And since that's not really
documented, I don't want to do that - it could change without notice and
break our link controls completely.
