Ok - then you do want node contexts.
As I recall, the patch posted to selinux list circa 2006 for adding
semanage node context support didn't actually work correctly and no one
chased it down. So if you want to revive it on selinux list and see if
we can hunt down the underlying issue, that might be worthwhile.
