Following up on this a bit - it would be possible to weaken the Apache policy so that there are not separate types for user versus system content, or CGI script executables versus CGI data. You'd just have a single type, httpd_content_t. Then an administrator wouldn't have to know how to run chcon to relabel executable CGI scripts or mark data as readonly by the CGI script. However, you lose a number of advantages of the normal Apache policy, such as compromised (or misconfigured) CGI scripts not being able to delete your entire website.
