(j3.2006) statement labels and scope

In 3.2.5 Statement labels we say that a statement label shall not be given to more than one statement ?in its scope?.  Since BLOCK constructs are scopes, if this is taken as stated, the following

subroutine sub
10 continue

10 continue
end block

end subroutine sub

should be conforming.  In, instead, we actually meant ?inclusive scope?, then it would not be.  Personally, I think that allowing this is preferred, and would not require a wording change.   But I?m checking because I see inconsistent behavior with different compilers.  (And this is in one of my clauses to read this time).
