I have two plans.

1) Full Simplified Policy, no modular policy
This is current version. 
Whole policy is replaced by simplified policy, generated policy is
monolithic.
What I want do is AppArmor-like configuration(security enhanced AppArmor??).
I think I do not need modular policy for that use.
semanage, semodule commands,APIs are not used in current version.

2) Appendable simplified policy, modular policy support
It exists only in my head..
Simplified policy for one domain is converted into .pp  file,
and loadable to existing policy.
It will take time, because I have been spending time for 1).

Thanks for information.
I will support both.
