I also don't always insert a label for each section or environment where
AUCTeX offers to insert one, but I'm just fine with hitting C-g in those
cases where I don't want one.

I think, I cannot encode my labeling needs in such a variable, e.g., my
requirement is not simply "I don't want labels for FOOBARs" but more
like "I don't want labels for FOOBARs unless it's a paper for the QUUX
journal using the BAZ document class."  Well, and the rules are probably
not really static anyway.

But just that I have no use for a feature doesn't mean it's bad, of
course.  If it's useful for you and possibly others, then I'm fine with
just not customizing it and getting the behavior I'm used to.
