I already leave a bit of air around my controls. Something I learned from a design guy years ago.

It would be more convenient to have a property to set the width to the formattedWidth, but it raises another question: what do you do with the space saved?

That is, if the layout it too tight to allow some extra space in a label field to accommodate the different HIG specs for each platform, when a field is automatically readjusted as proposed then wouldn't you also need to adjust surrounding controls to take advantage of the change?
