i would suggest two tweaks to make this absolutely clear. first, the
example should include at least two "LABEL" lines -- if all an example
ever supplies is a single LABEL line, it might still leave the
impression that only one is allowed.
also, use an example with a goofy name, to make it clear that the
label name is arbitrary, something like:
LABEL INSTALL ...
LABEL RUN ...
LABEL BUILDMYSTUFF ...
those changes would make it obvious what is supported, i think.
That's great, thanks! Are you interested in opening a pull request upstream?
