Bug Description

In upgrading select2 to 4.0.9, I have not made the following changes:

* Add label to "Remove tag" button
* Adding ability to remove tag via 'enter' key if one is focused on the 'x' of a tag (commit 5ec92cddcf24fca18fdb1b24707216a5ea24bde8) - added but doesn't seem to work :(

It also seemed to not be working in the current code.

We need to find a version in which this is working and then copy the code over or just make the changes again, whichever is easier.

For clarity, the issue is that if you make tags as a keyboard user, the x (remove) button is not accessible via tab or arrow keys. Also there is no label on that button so that a screen reader would not be able to identify what the remove button was.
