Is it a case of having permission from the band but not the label, or vice versa?

It's in the FAQ, this happens when for one album we have a permission from a label, and the other album was with another label and we don't have permission for it (yet).

I'm sure other users here could offer similar information. Is it worth while posting said information if it doesn't amount to a direct "I hereby approve of fan-made tabs"?

Well, discussing tabs with fans is not the same as allowing to publish them on the website. If you made contact with a band, just ask them to send us a short email telling that they don't mind if we put up their tabs.
