How to label a GELI device

I have an encrypted partition, /dev/da0s1d. I can use geli
attach da0s1d and obtain a device /dev/da0s1d.eli, which is a
UFS filesystem. All that works just fine.
I'd like to label /dev/da0s1d so that I don't have to refer to
the exact drive number, etc., which might change if I reboot
with a USB stick in the system or whatever. But glabel puts the
label in the last sector, which is where GELI stores metadata.
So, how do I make this work?
