If labels could be assigned classifications then auto text could be used in the label to display the classification assigned to that label. Having done this classifications can be used as a single source for generating notes not related to an object. object

I don't think that would be a good idea nor needed.
Labels should read the information from the element since this element should be exportable to IFC. If somehow you can't pull the info from the correct object then place a Dummy object (LOD 100 geometry) and pull the info from it. This would also have the benefit of showing up in schedules.

PS.
Labels should never be "Static".

I currently use a dummy note object.
Yes they schedule which is great for a note Key Legend... Of course if labels were a real object they would also schedule and I would not have placeholder objects floating are the project. Not everything in a project is modeled, but often a label is needed to explain a level of detail that will never be modeled. Dumb labels are really a bad idea!
