I haven't gotten a chance to play with this the way I want to so there is
still a lot of questions regarding its interaction with apparmor and its
policy, but from what I have seen so far it is looking good.

I expect the all or nothing choices may limit its deployments (we really
need to play with this more to say) but we already face similar issues.
There are options we provide at a distro level that we can't turn on by
default, but we do recommend to more security conscious users.

If lockdown was in kernel we would certainly make it available for our
users, we have even had a few people ask about it.
