Hmm how about "call by label-value"?

That is, you change labels by assignment, but pass the value of the 
label to a function. Since label value is passed, original label is not 
changed (i.e. it's not call by reference).

However, an object referenced by label value can be changed in Python, 
like in classic example of list label passed to a function and then this 
list being modified in a function.
