If the "label-item pair" model of a list is retained,
then <castList>s must be allowed to have <label>s, too.
For that matter, <castItem>s and <castGroup>s should be
allowed to have <label>s, as well.

    I don't see any use case for this, and I don't follow the logic. Can you provide an example where this would be needed?

    I am closing this for now, as I still can't see any use case. castLists are not the same as label-item lists: they often have more complex internal structure which is what castItem and castGroup are for. If you just want to add a label of some kind to an individual component of a castList -- that's what the @n attribute is for. But in the absence of any examples at all I can't see any reason for making this change.
