the visibility widgets are different for layer general properties and label rendering properties. IMHO it would be appropriate to make them

I like the option of having scale dependent labels and symbology separate.
Maybe make it an option to have them uniform.

For example, I have a really nice creek/rivers dataset that it excellent at large scales (zoomed in).
But at smaller scales (zoomed out) I have a generalized dataset without attributes for labeling so need to rely on labels from the creek/rivers dataset still draw.

So when a user zooms out, the creeks/rivers dataset will turn off (symbol) wise and with some data defined labelling will still draw the rivers label (without creeks) over the generalized dataset when that turns on.

Sorry I was unclear: the options must stay separate, whet should be uniform is the interface: currently the same option looks different in the two interface, and this is confusing for the user.
