That doesn't really have much to do with SELinux being enabled or
disabled; it has more to do with coming up with a standard FTP extension
to handle additional security settings, getting it in an RFC, and
getting software authors to implement it. It could be done as a SITE
command, but it still needs to be well-specified before anyone would
The basic fact is that FTP isn't going away for a long time to come.
With things like Kerberos and IPsec or even STARTTLS, FTP doesn't need
to go away.
