I don't think that description of existing behaviour is accurate. With old
libvirt you have one <seclabel> (for SELinux/AppArmour), but secretly there
are 2 security drivers (SELinux/AppArmour + DAC). Setting type=none for
the seclabel only meant that the SELinux/AppArmour drivers ran the guest
unconfined. The second (DAC) driver would still be applied to the guest
making it run unprivileged/confined.

What actual problem have you seen with upgrades ?
