SELinux and the FHS are both specific to a particular OS --
Linux. We have to support dozens of different OSes. It would be
just as silly to apply a standard appropriate for Linux to an
operating system like Xenix, as it would be to do the reverse.
We have no choice but to create our own standards that are
applicable across all the platforms we support. Of course, we will
do what we can to make these standards something that can be changed
at installation time, if someone needs to follow a different set of
standards for their particular site/platform.
Of course, if someone else is going to take those features and
create their own standards, or follow alternative standards, and then
produce binary installations which will be provided to their
customers, then they are also responsible for supporting those
modified versions of the package for their customers.
RedHat is doing a good job in this area. Others cannot say the same.
