No, I'm trying to add one new piece of functionality at a time, so we
can see where it makes sense to draw the line. Although, having said
that, if I can label file B at rev 2, and file A at rev 1, then
there's no reason I can't remove the label from file A and label
tags/tag_1/A at rev whatever. At this point, the branch holds the
label though, not the trunk.

However, when we start to combine labelling and branching in the same
implementation, I'd suggest that we would not want two versions of the
same file (whether that means a different rev, or a different
copy/branch/tag) to ever have the same label.
