Sounds very good to me.  A few questions if I may ask:
* Does the system allow me to add multiple attributes to the messages?
  I could then perform a query based on those attributes at any later
  time.(Is this what the 'labels' do?)

* Are the labels limited to any number per message?

* Can I nest the labels?

I can see that.
