The results show that it is more usable for webYaST to provide
additional text providing the current status of a setting.

This reminds me. YaST dialogs are often rather chatty. For example,
the word "Enable" in option labels is superfluous. Instead of

[ ] Enable Hot Sunny Weather

you better simply say:

[ ] Hot Sunny Weather

IMO, that especially true, if the title of such an option list
comes with a group title featuring the "Enable" word, too:

Enable Fine Weather
===================
[ ] Hot Sunny Weather
[ ] With Wind Now and Then
etc.

"Enable" in the group title might be ok, but repeating it with every
option is overkill.
