Looks good to me. Thanks for writing these up!
For the stories, what about something like this:
Did you mean workflows?
"Phillip logs in to the system with Cockpit. He navigates to the
where he can set the SELinux permissions. He sets /companywebsite to be
accessible by httpd.
He then edits /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and sets the configuration
parameters necessary. He then creates the public_html folder for each
users and set the right permissions. Once that is done he changes the
selinux rule to allow users to server web content out of their home
In this scenario I would not expect users to change rules but change boolean values.
I'd rephrase the last sentence:
Once that is done he changes the SELinux boolean which allows web server
to serve content out of home directories.
He then creates a test user, drops a html-file in
/home/testuser/public_html and tests if it's accessible from a web
browser. Once it's done he logs out." 
"George Cucumber logs in to the system with Cockpit. He navigates to the
section where he can set the SELinux permissions. There he changes all
user accounts from unconfined to guest. Once it's done, he creates a
test user and tries to ping google.com
. It won't work, so he's
successful. He logs out again."
But it looks good.
"Paul logs in to the system with Cockpit. He navigates to the section
where he can set the SELinux permissions. He sets the bank_trans_
service to permissive. Once that is done, he logs out again"
I'm not surte about this workflow. I CCed Mirek who's the owner of this
idea if he can provide some insight for this.
1. Note that I added the additional steps unrelated to selinux, but
necessary for the workflow to be successful. There is still a big gap
before all this is successful only using Cockpit, but I think that's OK
