Nobody proposed that the labels be disattached from the arrows.
Nor did anybody propose free placement.

The question is, where is the label to be placed along the arrow. This leaves at
least one degree of freedom along the line of the arrow, and a choice between one of the two sides of the line.

As it is, the automatic placement often results in ugly or confusing diagrams.

It is possible to construct diagrams that work around this problem.  But it's a bad
policy to take, expecting users to work around interface glitches.
