Frankly, I don't get why we should support IMAP/Gmail if it's just about
doing the same thing as IMAP/IMAP would do with Gmail backend on one
Gmail type is all about labels.

Yes and no. It's not just about "getting it working". It's about getting
it properly supported.
I think we are still far from this. The idea of Gmail/IMAP is good but
we have to find a way to translate the labels on the IMAP side. The best
equivalent I can think of is folders.
