In case we abolish labelling for Oracle induced items, I would strongly suggest to only allow it for patches of the current release (e.g. only 11.0.5-oracle at the moment in 11u). In case one wanted to pre-draw something from a later Oracle release, a maintainer should have a closer look whether the backport is suitable for the current OpenJDK release cycle already. Which will be true in most cases probably - but who knows.
I consider this another argument to keep the unconditional labelling for all items. Otherwise this rule will be hard to enforce and people will do mistakes.
