And it makes it so much fun when your mobo blows up and you try to move the system drive to another working system, only to find that nothing will boot because the labels (e.g. '/usr', '/home', etc.) are all duplicated.

Wouldn't it be a better default policy to make the default labels be somewhat unique? Say, 1 letter from the mfgr + 2-3 digits from the serial# -> "W23:/home".

How is this handled for portable drives? Aren't duplicate labels a problem there?
