I'm going to start swapping over to tubular as my current rims wear out so new builds for a while.)
Been building wheels myself since the early 80's. It's certainly not necessary to align the hub label with the valve hole with the hub label, but it is a nice touch that makes the valve hole easier to find. The technique is described in Roger Musson's "Professional Guide to Wheel Building", page 67.
