CLKFullColorImageProvider.accessibilityLabel is ignored in voiceover in the watchface!

Classification:Bug Reproducible:Yes
I am providing a GraphicRectangular complication in my app, via CLKComplicationTemplateGraphicRectangularFullImage, and I would like to have the complication accessible to my blind users, as I have gone to great lengths to make the app blind-friendly.

I set accessibilityLabel of my CLKImageProvider (this is the only place where I seem to be able to set the accessibility label to a complication), but this label is ignored by VoiceOver - VoiceOver just reads an app name instead of my provided accessibility label.

var imageProvider = CLKFullColorImageProvider(/* graphical weather forecast */)
imageProvider.accessibilityLabel = “A string describing the weather represented in chart”

let template = CLKComplicationTemplateGraphicRectangularFullImage()
template.imageProvider = imageProvider

Expected behavior:
VoiceOver reads my provided accessibilityLabel

Actual behavior:
VoiceOver reads just the name of the app which provides the complication. This even applies to some system provided complications (now playing, weather).
