``Now, if we label one of them A and the other B''

     As I understand it, we are not allowed (in modern physics) to do this,
because the physicists who believe the wave function of an electron actually
is the electron can only tell you that ``there are two electrons'' in the
universe of discourse, in a similar way that we discuss a bucket containing
two gallons of water.
