Yes, I think this would be a good thing to have in F16.
Note however that this needs a tiny kernel patch to work, to create the
mount point under /sys/fs/selinux. This is a trivial patch and has been
done for /sys/fs/cgroup before, so I assume this would be easy to get
in and just needs a champion to push this forward.
By the way, maybe it would be good to think about the meaning of
existance? For seven years FHS requires that this directory exists
but "The methodology used to name subdirectories of /srv is
unspecified as there is currently no consensus on how this should be
done" - so even the authors of the standard did not have anything to
say about how this directory should be used. Is there a rational
reason for the existence of this directory besides FHS conformance?
I think /srv actually makes a lot of sense. Probably not so much on the
desktop, but the boundaries are blurry, and I see no reason to set
things up differently in this respect between servers and desktops. I
see little benefit in removing this directory.
