This was proposed before, but SELinux maintainers really want that the
loaded selinux policy picks the label, and not unit files.

i.e. as I understand their philosophy: how labels are assigned should
be encoded in the database and in the policy but not elsewhere,
i.e. in unit files. I think that philosophy does make sense.
