OH3 Get items label in custom widget

I wonder whether I have missed something in the docs. There seems to be no way to get the items label in the YAML of a custome widget for an item set by a prop? With the items collection I can get the state of an item by something like items[props.item].state but not the name or label of the item. I know that the docs are clear about that. Seems to be not a technical problem because we can get it inside of an oh-repeater block. ´
Hope I have not got anything wrong about the concept of widgets as nobody else seems to miss it.
Thanks for any hint

I also miss this feature. I would like to set the name of a oh-time-series to the label of the item, but that does not seem possible because there is no way to access the label.
