Because relying on boot options is a great way to cause problems for
yourself later on down the line.  If you boot with selinux=0, the
installer disables SELinux for the installed system.  The fact that we
use a better and more persistent means of disabling it and also one that
can be reversed if you later decide that you want SELinux is a
*positive* thing.
