Of course, even if the policy is accepted by FESCo it will not be set in stone and changes and exceptions can be added in future as appropriate, but I'd like to have it as good as possible at first :) thanks all!

In practice, packages which provide one or more of:

      * setuid binaries
      * PolicyKit policies
      * consolehelper configurations
      * udev rules

are likely to be affected by this policy


  * D-Bus services on the system bus

be listed there, to make sure that /etc/dbus-1/system.d/*.conf files are
sane?  It's just that it is quite a commonly used mechanism.

This was brought up in discussion of one of the first drafts, IIRC, so
perhaps it is intentionally omitted..?
