That's only a recent time the topic was discussed, its come up in other
discussions in the past on the list. That recent thread (threads) are
probably harder to follow than if one searches the archives for other more
consistently threaded posts.

For what it's worth, I too like Labels because I can usually remember what
I have labelled a partition and not normally remember a UUID string. For a
normal home user situation, I don't imagine many people will actually give
two partitions the same Label. Removable drives are probably the most risk
of duplicate Labels.
