Here are some thoughts:

* Consider assigning a GUID to the ext3 partition instead of a label.
Labels are certainly simpler, but a GUID is more likely to be unique
(though I'm sure you could come up with a pretty unique but still
simple label...).

There is a length limit on labels, 16 characters for ext2/3, according to the e2label command man page.

Labels are fine for disks that are fixed to one machine, use the GUID to be sure you have a unique value per disk/partition between multiple systems.
