I don't know where you're getting this "typical" response from.  The
problem isn't rpm, the problem is selinux itself, not allowing rpm to
write out files that have a context it doesn't know about (yet), since
the context may be in the policy it's laying down.  Think chroots or
anaconda or livecreation.  Until the selinux upstream gets a clue
on this one we're stuck.  It's not like people haven't been arguing
this point for many many years now...
