	lda	#>table
	sta	ptr+1
	ldy	offs
	lda	(table),y

The immediate loads do actually use a label, but because the label is broken
into two halves, the disassembler is not able to spot it. Changing the code
somewhere will break it, because the location of the table changes, but the
immediate loads are not updated accordingly.

Are there any disassemblers which are able to spot locations like the one
