Right. If the Grand Plan is to go down this path, then what I've been
referring to as 'the security policy' would include the policies defined
for each spin, and hence any testing QA did for any given spin would
involve the policy defined for that spin.

Having said that - is everyone agreeing that it's fine for each spin SIG
to be entirely in charge of defining and implementing security policy
for each spin? At the very least, that would possibly be problematic
given the known border issues between 'the desktop spin' and 'Fedora'.
Just another issue contributing to why we would need to settle that.
