+1 because I think "Save/Load Properties" describes better what the button

Personally, I quite like to keep style and labels together. Sure, it might  
be a little less flexible but on the other hand it's faster and often  
labels styles and symbology are designed to work together (e.g. label  
buffer in same/similar color as polygon fill).

Thanks for bringing this up!

Best wishes,
