The thing about Windows is that it is entirely proprietary: Only
Microsoft and select others can look at the source code (and perhaps not
even the whole of it). 

SELinux, on the other hand, is entirely Free. It, like other
kernel/security projects, is scrutinized by a great many (several
hundred? thousand(s)?) developers from around the globe; not just one
owner. Had anything similar found its way into SELinux, it would be
quickly removed and the committing developer removed from the project
most likely. :)
