The labels: keyword says which annotation property can be used for a
quoted label. One might suggest that only rdfs:label be used for
labels but Alan said he wants to be able to use other properties, for
example skos:prefLabel

Similarly, one might want to be able to choose that labels used in
rendering to manchester syntax are ones in a particular language.
