Pathname-based hooks for SELinux?

Pathname-based hooks for SELinux?

"I see. Pathname based controls. In SELinux."

But this isn't pathname-based access controls at all.

It's delegation of labeling responsibility. If you have labeling authority, either you do all the labeling yourself or you delegate the responsibility, to a human or to a computer, and to do that you must give instructions.

The security labels are applied directly to the object; its name is immediately completely irrelevant, and that's just as it should be.
