Default Disable SELinux in LiveCD

While I was using Fedora 9 Beta (x86_64) GNOME LiveCD, I tried to
change my keyboard layout to Croatian, and got SELinux warning. I
think that configurating SELinux to change keyboard layout can be
pretty frustrating to new users, so my advise is disable it while in
LiveCD mode. As far as I know, the SELinux is really not needed in
LiveCD mode...

This is the wrong answer, instead the bug should be fixed. Did you file
the avc?

The advice of switching SELinux off is almost always completely wrong. A
(hypothetical?) SELinux-protected web browser helps users of Live media
as well. Why not just fix configuring the keyboard instead?
