You get out on the river a lot, right? If so, sounds like it may be ready to be retired or relegated to spare status anyway.

Adding material over the top of the label could be considered a "patch" which is verboten

UV and age diminish the strength of the fabric a lot - clearly the label doesn't save your life, but if your pfd is aging, the label might be a good indicator of when it is worth getting a new unit. Faded label on a several year old pfd that hasn't been sitting out in the sun? That sounds like warranty to me.
