Is must block because the join file needs to be modified by the new label
positions. Like you say, I imagine, it's a read only connection but I am not
sure. I would try joining with a dbf file but you will probably have the same
results. You could join the files then save them but that would give you
multiple versions. Perhaps trying a database would solve the problem.
Perhaps the idea would be to have multiples x and y labels columns for
different projects or else to export the label column as .csv that you could
