I think these are only "better" in theory, in practice they're equivalent.
Users won't notice any difference whatsoever and the <meta> will probably most
often arrive in the same packet as the header, so there's no measurable
performance impact either.

1 broken page doesn't seem particularly convincing to move away from the
interop (ignoring Presto) of not supporting the label. It also still seems
plausible that there are other pages on the long tail with the opposite
expectation.
