Label instead of heading for CSS styling ?

I guess that Nick chose the label element instead of a heading element to use the CSS styling used for that element.

You did not reference any particular course/module/video, but just in general, I would expect the choice of a label or heading would be related to the HTML content.

I would expect a heading to be used with a collection of items, and a label to be used with a single one, particularly an input or control of some kind.
