This echos back to a conversation I had during the core/extras merge
meetings, the idea of a Fedora Standard Base.  That is, a basic set of
things you must have in your "spin" in order to call it Fedora.  These
include things like rpm, yum, and SELinux (at least in my opinion), but
we never really coded this up nor hashed out what should be in the FSB,
or if FSB was even a good name for the concept.
