Vertices with attributes or weight

What I would like to see is the ability to give  vertices in a polyline or along the edge of a polygon attributes or weight.

What I would want to use it mostly for would be as an anchor point for a label.

In many cases dynamic labeling works fine.  But often a label for a road appears in a bad spot and is mixing in with important symbols.

I would like to see the ability to give vertices the attribute to be an anchor point for a label along a polyline.  Give it a weight so to speak such that the label along the line will try to go to that point first.

What I do now is I created a point feature I call label block.  basically just a point feature with a  feature weight of 1000 so labels do not generate in a specific spot.  But sometimes this interferes with other labels.
