Yep! I reported the problem to Michael Sharpe as @egreg suggested. Within 45 minutes, Michael acknowledged the bug, fixed it, sent me corrected files, and said he'd send the fix to CTAN. Wow!

Here's a helpful hint to anyone trying this in the future. The undefined \seq_use:Nnnn control sequence is still undefined if using an initial installation of TeXLive 2012. However, if your TeXLive 2012 installation is fully up-to-date (tlmgr update --all), then egreg's solution does work.

Confirmed as working under TeXLive 2012. Looks like it's time to ask my system administrators to update our installation!

This looks encouraging! But I am seeing an error: Control sequence \seq_use:Nnnn undefined. Perhaps my version of some supporting code is out-of-date? I am using expl3 version 2729, dated 2011/09/05, from TeXLive 2011.

My background content concerns are really hypothetical, as I have no such background material in the diagram I actually want to make. I do have curves, though, and of the three solutions proposed so far, this is the only one that lets curves remain curved. I'm going to mark this as the accepted answer. I will probably post a new question with the challenge of interrupting a curved line with a label without obscuring background content.

bend right has the same problematic effect on edge. In both cases, mark connection node turns the bend into two straight segments. But I'm inclined to agree that this is a separate question.

Unfortunately I do indeed need a curved path. I omitted it from my initial example because I did not realize it would an extra difficulty, but I need the line from A to B to bend right. Do you know a way to do that? hpesoj626 posted a suggestion that marks with an additional arrow head, but that approach also breaks when using a bend right line from A to B.

I do like the way your approach neatly tucks everything away in a style. And I could get over my distaste for shorten >. But now I am seeing a different problem. If the line is supposed to curve, your solution instead draws two straight line segments. Try changing (A) -- (B) to (A) to [bend right] (B) and you should see what I mean. The label is correctly shifted downward, but the line segments from A to the label and from the label to B are both straight. Without label decorate, the line from A to B is curved as desired.

This looks good when small. At higher magnifications, one can see that the right edge of the line extends slightly beyond the arrow tip, leading to something like --->- (though not as exaggerated). I suppose I can use shorten >=.5pt to trim off the excess. But I've never really liked using shorten >. It requires manually guessing the proper amount to shorten and needs to be tweaked whenever I change the arrow style, line thickness, etc. Not sure how to automate that better.
