That's a nice solution. I am forwarding it to the list.

Try doing a slice through all the contour lines, and then selecting
the points on the slice that you want to label. Then turn on the
selection inspector and show point labels with the variable you want
to plot. I've found the number of trailing zeros is a bit annoying, as
there's no control over the number format, and I normally choose
integer values for the contours.
The selection labels aren't persistent so a state file will lose these
labels, and you'll have to reselect them if you need another plot.

Not currently. But that sounds like a nice feature. Feel free to add
it to http://paraview.uservoice.com/ . If there's enough interest in
the feature, we can try to add support for it.

There's of course the non-automatic way of create text labels
explicitly (using Sources | Text source).
