Did you try it?
Put your labels inside an \hbox , \mbox , or \text and it should just work.

Another approach would be to use Xy-pic, via \usepackage{xy} .
Then you can draw arrows in any direction and place text labels above, below or along the arrow. The possibilities are endless. (Actually, I'm not sure how well some of the more advanced features will work with XeTeX. That would be good to explore.)
