Can this be amended? I think it makes much more sense to allow people to input labels not numbers at this level.

General category names for different accounts is much more human than numbers, and you can still use incrementing numbers if you prefer.

There is no way to iterate over all strings. The intention is that a wallet application can detect a new account that becomes in use (e.g. during disaster recovery), so the accounts get assigned incrementing numbers.

I wouldn't mind adding the ability to do "non-standard derivations" using arbitrary strings, if this recoverability property is not desired.
