I don't discount that it's 'important'.  I doubt whether or not end 
users are prepared to deal with SELinux for their every day use 
computer.  I REALLY question the ideology of forcing it down users 
throats (by making it the default) in a Fedora Core release.  I worry 
that it will be very counterproductive to industry acceptance of Fedora 
Core as a remotely usable distribution.
