Since LVs are already "named" there is usually no reason to label the filesystems on top of them.

Yes, there is. The idea of file system labels is that you do not have
to know (or care) where exactly the filesystem is located.

A LV path is just a device name, too. You may choose the name of the
device name, which is more than can be said for "normal" block device
names, but it is still just a device name.


But my real point, is why does install insist on a LABEL? The /dev naming convention works fine with the new kernel. Also, system-config-lvm has no option to provide a LABEL.
