I don't find that very radical at all. The backup_label file is *supposed* to be removed on the master if it crashes during the backup; and it should never be removed from the backup itself. At least that's how I understand it. Unfortunately, people too often remove the file from the backup and, judging by your report, leave it there on the master. (We could try to fix this confusion - and thereby confuse all the people who understand it now - by changing things so that you have to leave the file there on the master, and remove it from the backup.
