BTW, in case anyone was wondering and didn't want to embarrass me, I should clarify, I do know very well that IMAP/JMAP and SMTP are at different levels in the whole protocol and mechanisms hierarchy.

JMAP is the intended replacement for IMAP, and has explicit provision for replacing (or rendering unnecessary) SMTP too.  And JMAP fully supports labels (a la Gmail), not just in the e-mail message base, but in contacts, etc., too (a contact can belong to many "labels"/groups), basically, wherever the labels concept makes sense.
