I question if this necessary. You can have entries in fstab with or
without labels. I've had 3 single Fedora installations on single drive
across multiple partitions and never have run into a problem in the
installer or usage nor have I had to manually edit fstab for this. I
think in Anaconda the labels will start shifting to /1, /2, /home1
etc. Since at runtime you don't deal with partition labels, just their
mount points, it really is not a serious concern.

Just my opinion.


Your horizon is too narrow, i.e. Fedora centric. Try installing other
distros on your system to appreciate the problem.
