Hi Rick,

What you would normally see in the feedback portal is some workaround. When a feature/fix becomes official, this type of workaround is likely not needed anymore. With fixes, likely you will see no changes, simply "it will work", but with features, you can find information in the documentation. For example, in this case, the label template in the tabstrip is documented here:

Are you expecting to have a supported solution?  This is a very old feature request that has been flagged as completed but noted that it is simply a non-supported hack.

This item is gaining some traction and while it is not planned yet, something like this can be kind of a workaround (note: it's hacky, causes invalid HTML and will require tweaks, but it may suffice for a couple of simple tasks even though it is not an officially supported solution):
