Note that using AppArmor for this is possible only when nothing runs truly
'unconfined' (since unconfined has no restrictions). Full system confinement is
a complex topic with a significant amount of work to do correctly; let's just
say for this discussion that the current approach is easier (but we can of
course discuss this further in some appropriate forum if we want to explore this
option longer term).
