People may prefer goto labels standing out better.

One way to do this would be to enforce an empty line before such labels, and even possibly also another empty line after them:

foo();
bar:
baz();

could become

foo();

bar:
baz();

or even:

foo();

bar:

baz();

(Merits and demerits of goto as such are irrelevant here.)
