In the most general case i would have a where-to-mount directory with
lots of directories for the various partitions (here 10 drives with
20 partitions each).

But thankfully I don't have to deal with the most general case as I am
as compulsive about giving all partitions a reasonably unique label as
Debian is about assigning UUIDs.

"Reasonably unique" doesn't really cut it.

For my current 2.2TB, the labels seem acceptably unique:
