Labeling might be a good thing to do but I'm not sure that I agree with your

others make available to them." [1]

That was not what I meant at all.
I believe even users with a profound interest in freedom of software and an honest commitment to their choice face "technical" problems: They may not have the time and patience to research what license a project uses, what it means, what the difference between other licenses are and whether it is "officially free software". People can make their choices more easily when they see the label and know what it means.
