There is much more to facet name mapping for display in the grand  
scheme of things.  I18N is something I'm interested in building into  
Flare such that facets get returned and looked up for the proper  
label in the users locale.  I think having a missing label feature is  
unnecessary at this point.  We're already on parameter overload as it  
is, so pushing back on new ones seems prudent.

It's too risky that the string would correspond with a value in the  
facet field too, which would cause confusion or even an error if the  
client was expecting unique values.
