My subroutines can range from just a few lines to over several hundred lines long. Labelled blocks sometimes help in making long subroutine clearer, as well as creating lexical scope to isolate the effect of variables.
I do have to question your claim. What makes variable names much less important than subroutine names? Variables are referred to much more often.
