I agree (partially) with that sentiment. Though it can obviously go way
too far with the aim of making life "easier" during a 10 minute install.

If it were really black and white like that, then I'd have to argue for
SELinux to be disabled by default on new Fedora installs and have users
go into the system config dialog to turn it back on. After all, if
you're going to use the following argument:

Then consider, those who know what SELinux is are more likely to know
about that dialog, and therefore more likely to turn it on. If you don't
like that, then I suggest giving thought to re-instating the option :)
