You forgot the crucial point. Namely that SELinux is not necessary
for most.

btw I don't know who "vehemently advocating to disable
SELinux". Rather it is "I don't need it" or its variations -- all very
smooth and mild like the Theodore Tso's comment I quoted in the first
place. I quote one more from the same thread. This one is from Linus:

     "I find SELinux to be so irrelevant to my usage that I don't use
      it at all"
