I was able to use ardour to export labels iirc. It was very useful
for creating a CUE file. Hugely anticipating v3. Thanks.

Seems to me, although I always underestimate what's involved, that
my needs are so basic compared to the high functionality everything
I've seen provides. If you, or anyone similarly capable, could knock
up something like I've described - you'd be surprised how quickly new
regions can be marked. A configurable default naming scheme would allow
annotation to be a secondary process, so that an entire file could be
marked in not much time at all.

The growing region list would be shown in a side panel...
