I'd be really happy if it were possible for non-members to add labels,
 though that's currently not possible.
Note that I wrote a message to the GitHub support asking for this 
feature back in June last year.

Original mail:
>> Some repositories' issue trackers would benefit from allowing users
 to set certain labels.
>> One of them is https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues, where 
reporters (also the ones that are *not* members of the repository) are
 currently required to add labels to the summary.
>> This should either be added to the general repository settings or 
(probably the better place) as an option in the label editor.

Also, it would be great if GitHub allowed to filter mail notifications
 by labels, though there's no option for that, neither.

I've just sent a request for that to the GitHub people.

Therefore, I guess prefixed spec. labels are currently the only way 
for people to be able to filter them automatically in their mail
