If an entity field appears in a block, and it is in-place editable right in the block, then confusion can arise. E.g. imagine that it is an entity's "Title" field. Then the user might think that he's editing the title of the block, not of the entity.
See #1824500-59: In-place editing for Fields point 2, #1824500-61: In-place editing for Fields point 2, #1824500-64: In-place editing for Fields's part that responds to #59, #1824500-73: In-place editing for Fields and #1824500-87: In-place editing for Fields point 2.
Increase the length of the label, to include the name of the entity type and/or the entity bundle. However, this in itself may also cause confusion and increase the mental (and visual) complexity.
We need to investigate this more, conduct usability testing. While working on this, we must take into account that we may want to add in-place editing to more than just fields; this may impact the labeling design
