When moving a single piece of wire with xref label at the end(s), the
label elegantly follows the wire.

I wish this can be done for wires with non-xref labels attached too, but
only when both ends of the wire are included in the move. If one end is
stuck to a part or a junction, there is no need to move the label.

I realized I do a lot of these, and has to move both wire and label, or
group them before moving.

That would fit seemlessly with the proposals for individual formating
of xref labels (directional boxes).
There the 'Box direction' property would only need to allow an
additional 'noBox' value (besides: in, out, bidirectional, none)
