With such little emphasis on watts within the new labeling, my concern is that many of the people who choose standard incandescent bulbs while they are available may accidentally install bulbs with a higher wattage than is specified by the fixture manufacturer and cause fire hazards/fires in their homes. Maybe you could incorporate some kind of warning about this towards the top of the label.
