Re: AxesLabel parallel to 3D axes?

If the ViewPoint is not allowed to change:

labels = {
   Rotate["This is the x", -20 Degree],
   Rotate["This is the y", 60 Degree],
   Rotate["This is the z\n", 95 Degree]};

Plot3D[x y, {x, 0, 1}, {y, 0, 1},
 AxesLabel -> labels]

=============
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"}]
