Everyone who runs a computer that takes input from an external source,
whether that be floppies, or a network connection, or a bluetooth
keyboard.  Security matters... it doesn't matter if you are a desktop
user or not... security matters.  If we are doing a good enough job at
policy writing and management then we fix the policies.

You really need to go back and read every single blog post from Dan
Walsh concerning the new xguest policy he is working on.  He's got
very clear and very real desktop usage cases in mind for it.  Turning
selinux off wholesale on a desktop spin just because its not optimal
yet, is short-sighted.
