domains/misc and file_contexts/misc are not necessarily for local 
customisations, they are for files without a match.

For every .te file in domains/program there must be a matching .fc file in 
file_contexts/program (or you can't build the file_contexts file).  Any .fc 
file in file_contexts/program that does not have a matching .te file will not 
be used.

So if you have a .fc file with no matching .te file or a .te with no 
matching .fc then you have to put it in a misc directory.

For a file you create yourself use a name like local.te or custom.te that is 
not likely to be used in any distributed policy.
