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 
join later...

Good luck
