--- Comment #5 from H. Peter Anvin <hpa at zytor.com> ---
So I can think of several subcases that probably want separate warnings; your
patch has some of them but not all:

1. Colonless label on empty row (already there)
2. Colonless label before naked prefix
3. Colonless label before instruction (possibly prefixed)
4. Colonless label before pseudo-op
5. Colonless label before macro

2 and 3 could be enabled by default; 4 and 5 probably need to start off because
people following MASM conventions would not use colons there.

There is also the option of having a warning for a colonless label preceded by

Macros could be allowed to have override options to treat as one of the other

This also reminds me that I have been meaning to add a mechanism for having a
macro capture prefixes as well as labels.
