That's not the point of many chroot usages.  Frequently chroots are
used to gain access to content from a different release or arch than
what you have installed.  EG we use RHEL5 to create chroots of f9 and
build packages within that chroot using F9 content.  Likewise we do a
pure i386 package set on x86_64 to accomplish our i386 build.  These
types of usages cannot be easily replaced with an selinux policy.
