I remember us talking about the confusing regarding label meaning 
something on MediaStream and something else on MediaStramTrack, but I 
don't really recall the exact resolution.

This edit was really a rename of what you refer to as the 
"machine-generated" identifier from "label" to "id" to align with 
MediaStreamTrack. We've never had a "human-generated" identifier on 
MediaStream so it hasn't been removed. :)

I'm not really convinced we need a human settable identifier on 
MediaStream unless it's transported over a p2p connection (and we have a 
use-case for that). If you want to assign a custom label to a 
MediaStream on the local side you can simply add as many new properties 
to it as you like (myStream.label = "Web Cam & headset mic"; ).
