We have talked about this in the past, and so far it has not gone
anywhere.  The original goal when refpolicy policy was first written was
to allow more fine grained control then the example policy, which
grouped large amounts of access rules within a single macro.
(can_network) for example.  So we wanted to avoid this, and perhaps the
pendulum swung too far to the opposite degree.
