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.

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.
