No, it does not yet support network packet labeling.

In my idea, the sending side should only agree to network link labels that fit 
to the file label, and the receiving side can only create the file with a 
correct label.

Sending something, e.g. the file, over network is like copying it twice: First 
to the network link, then to the target file. If both ends are always in a 
secure state, then the information flow is always correct.
