Speculation about what the SQL standards might contain at some stage if
they ever supported enums seems to be drawing a bit of a long bow, so
I'm not terribly convinced by that line of reasoning.
The reason I chose LABEL was that it's consistent with what we have used
elsewhere, both in the docs and the catalog. But I'm not strongly wedded
to it. If it's a choice between ELEMENT and VALUE, I too prefer VALUE at
it seems likelier to convey the sense of what we're doing to a naive user.
