DSC Alarm zone labels

I suppose this is a feature request, or simply wishing out loud. :)
Whenever I add a zone to my DSC1864, I have to manually add the zone label in 4 different places: my PK5500 panel, my WTK5504 arming station, the Eyez-On Envisalink web account, and finally in Indigo. Is there any hope of Indigo pulling the zone labels from any of the other devices, or possibly for Indigo to push zone labels to any other device?
I've discovered from random Googling that the DSC plugin for the VERA system supports a "retrieve a zone label" command, but I don't know the advantages/limitations of the VERA system versus Indigo.

Not sure if you received a reply elsewhere but what I found is that you have to send the labels to all other keypads and the IT-100 is treated as a keypad. On my system you go into installer mode then *998 and choose *=yes..

Generally that will work but it does depend on the versions of the keypads you've got! Older v2 keypads won't broadcast to the IT100 nor vice versa.

Computer says no.
