That's not how I read the comment, but then I'm also not familiar with SELinux, so this may just be an incorrect reading. My impression was that Rich wanted to assign a type to a file by name and let the rules compiler figure out what the actual object is.
After poking through the documentation, it looks like I might just have been off. There are examples of specifying objects by path, and wildcards to assign a type to everything not otherwise specified.
