The label itself is positioned left or right according
to the mtable's side attribute.  I think we been
consistent with the interpretation that "left"
always means "left", even in an RTL context, so that
we shouldn't need to reinforce that.

The only exceptions are things like lspace, rspace where
we could (and had to) fudge the interpretation to
"leading space"; and of course things we've inherited
from elsewhere (eg. "LEFT PARENTHESIS").

For the remaining children, the 1st paragraph of mlabeledtr
