I think that was more of a perception/communication problem than
anything else.  Linus seemed to hear the SELinux talk at the 2001 Kernel
Summit as SELinux == TE rather than SELinux == flexible MAC architecture
that can support TE, MLS, and other models easily.  No criticism
intended, likely just poor communication on our part, but it did seem
like a misunderstanding at the time.
