I do not understand why the one method is more "nice and neat" (but that ii of course at least partly personal taste) then the other. All variations on the by-... theme have their advantages and disadvantages and one should contemplate about those before deviating from the openSUSE deafult IMHO. And when you decide for by-label for one or more of them, you then can decide if you think it more "nice and clean" to use the specific fstab feature above the symlink way.
When I read the man page, I misunderstood and obviously became fixated on a different definition then the correct one. How nice it was to have a bunch of people reply so quickly. And with such professionalism and restraint. All I can say is "Well DUH!"

As for neatness, witness how nice it now looks:
