The future of product labeling

I've recently joined a number of other Americans in screening out
from my purchases items made in China, (payback's a bitch) and as
a result I've been thinking about labeling and it's effects.

The two most immediate cases that come to mind (besides China) are
the story of Usa Japan, and the biotech industries attempts to
avoid labeling at all costs.

In fact I can easily imagine the WTO or similar organization
passing regulations against "Made in _____" labeling specifically
to prevent economic action against politically unpopular nations.
