Labels (as aliases for revision numbers) are still useful in complex
repositories, even those containing multiple projects.

I can imagine the following labels being pretty useful:

"Repository restored after server crash - May 06"
"James left the development team"
"Switched to using svnserve."
"Policy change: no commits without an associated bug number"
etc.
