When you place a field on a form that has a long name, the name of the field fades. In CRM 2011, the field name would wrap. Fading causes some of the important content to not be visible. It would be more desirable to have the full field name visible via the old behavior of wrapping than to fade it. This would also allow for better future protection of moving to a more responsive web design that could accommodate more varied screen resolutions (and different devices)
The best practice would be to shorten the field names, or change the field label width in the section to accommodate long fields, and those are the current workarounds.
