[mapserver-users] 'dot' only features that are labeled

Two ways:

  - use an annotation layer
  - use label styles (6.0+)

You'd use the latter if you're drawing markers, in addition to other
symbolization of the geometries themselves (e.g. text+shields+road
line work).

If you're really doing just points just change TYPE POINTS to TYPE ANNOTATION.
