It has been asked before, and yes, IMHO it should be done.

site.xml links should use the label if not provided in the tag, or teh 
href value if not provided with anything.

AFAIK there needs to be a change in the linkrewriter code, but it's in 
Cocoon CVS... since we use it here, why not move it back here?
