It is also a proving ground for new technology that may eventually make
its way into Red Hat products. It is not a supported product of Red Hat,

In my mind I consider SELinux to be one of those new technologies.

I totally agree. If we need to spend more time to work out the bugs then
we push back the releases or issues RC's after beta 3. But if we don't
force it as enabled I fear it will never get throughly tested. I
consider it a bigger problem to have a bug that goes unnoticed for x
months or years only because of lack of testing, then to go through the
headache now and get it ironed out.
