AxesLabel parallel to 3D axes?

If one sets the AxesLabel option for, for example, Plot3D, is there any way to set things up so that resulting labels are always parallel to their own axes? ...here is an example, and a customer would like the labels to align along/paralle the axes rather than what is shown here.... Plot3D[x y, {x, 0, 1}, {y, 0, 1}, AxesLabel -> {"This is the x", "This is the y", "This is the z"}]
