I really don't see why using labels will make you "lose touch".
If you really think this, why not give the drive as part of the label,
eg hitachi-boot or something like that?

Also I don't think there is any problem with 2 drives
if you just leave them in the machine.
If I frequently changed the hard drive on my machine
I would install grub on the MBR of each drive I used.

I found the use of labels 
(which incidentally worked with previous versions of Fedora Core
though they weren't required) 
a little annoying to start with,
because it requires more keyboard strokes,
but in the end with more drives in use
I've come to the conclusion it simplifies life rather than the opposite.
