    Object labeling (or labeled security) looks simple and straight forward way,
    but it's not.

    (1) Object labeling has a assumption that labels are always properly
    defined and maintained. This can not be easily achieved.
    (2) Also, assigning a label is something like inventing and assigning
    a *new* name (label name) to objects which can cause flaws.

    I'm not saying labeled security or SELinux is wrong. I just wanted to
    remind that the important part is the "process" not the "result". :-)
