I agree with Steve that we should find out why FreeBSD chose this name.

I do not think we will see "linux", but I expect we will see other values.

I think the reason we want something here, and not "security", is that=20
this describes features/attributes/controls that are based on a UID/GID-
centered security model.

If we got with an ACL-based model or an attribute-based model, then I=20
would expect us to have other nodes under security related to policy for=20
them. I also understand FreeBSD has a "jail" section under "security".

Take care,
