I like it.  I dislike copying loops and having to enumerate the labels... or having labels that make sense in one context, but when copied elsewhere lose their meaning or become confusing.  (Like seeing a .loop3 label copied from elsewhere when there's no .loop1 or .loop2 to be found nearby.)

What's the downside?
