SELinux should be disablable is the wrong discussion. The discussion you should

I think the only way to "fix" it for the foreseeable future is to
simplify policy, so that only a very limited set of services are
confined. Then, when the graphical tools and user experience have
eventually caught up, it'll be trivial to switch policy again.
selinux-policy-targeted is precisely that.

Or more precisely, it would like to be that. Abrupt, single line replies
like the above amuse me perhaps more than they should, because they
carry the implication that I didn't actually consider what is currently
implemented in Fedora before sending my original mail ;)

Anyway. I've tried to make my point, I'm done now :)

I apologize for the brevity then, but having read your previous mails it seemed quite clear you hadn't looked at what targeted policy is when asking for it. If there are specific situations, or policy bugs, or services you feel shouldn't be confined under targeted policy it might make sense... but asking for a limited set of services when it exists is just about as confounded as you can get. I meant (and still mean) no offense, but if you want more thoughtful comments it would help to be more clear about what you have and haven't already learned about the situation.
