I study again this question this evening.

At the opposite of what I said on Wednesday (sorry...), there is clearly
a better and more powerful (and not very complicated...) solution than
the limited one that I gave at this time.

Nevertheless, I can't guarantee the code... As there are a lot of possible
usage of nodes and node connections, these changes can not work in all
situations, create bad side effects or break some functionalities. You must
test them in your real situations. But, at least, it work on the following
examples:

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}

\usepackage{pst-node}

\setlength{\textwidth}{14cm}
\setlength{\parindent}{-2cm}

\newcommand{\Labels}{%
\naput[nrot=:U]{above}
\ncput[nrot=:U]{on}
\nbput[nrot=:U]{below}}

\newcommand{\Test}{%
\begin{pspicture}(-3,-3)(3,3)\psgrid
\pcline(0,0)(2.5,2.5)\Labels
\pcline(0,0)(-2.5,2.5)\Labels
\pcline{->}(0,0)(-2.5,-2.5)\Labels
\end{pspicture}
\hfill
\begin{pspicture}(7,7)\psgrid
\cnodeput(4,6){A}{A}
\cnodeput(1,2){B}{B}
\cnodeput(6,1){C}{C}
\ncarc[arcangle=30]{A}{C}
\ncput{\pnode{D}}
\ncarc[arcangle=-30]{B}{C}
\ncput{\pnode{E}}
\nccurve[angleA=180]{D}{E}
\ncput{\rnode{F}{F}}
\Labels
\end{pspicture}}
