[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Potential change for EAD mapping of Physical Location tag

I'd like to request an enhancement to the EAD import/export mapping for the Physical Location Note field in ArchivesSpace.

Our institution assigns multiple call numbers to a collection which we want displayed with the label:  Call Number.  So, in our EAD records we encode the "label" attribute in the <physloc> tag, e.g. <physloc label="Call Number:">RH MS P509</physloc>

With the current import/export mapping for EADs, this label information is not being populated upon import and if you do add a label attribute in ArchivesSpace, it is not retained upon export, e.g. <physloc audience="internal" id="aspace_4790100a847d8e84474e82a5df69b5a4">RH MS 506</physloc>
