How is this different from (a) named branches, and (b) bookmarks when used as described in issue2788?
For reference, here's the 4(!) types of labels we currently have (cribbed from mpm's notes on issue2788):
name stored mutable auditable sharable auto-updating
tags .hgtags yes yes yes no
localtags .hg yes no no no
branches commit no yes yes no
bookmarks .hg yes no yes if-current
pacem in terris / mir / shanti / salaam / heiwa
