I'd be inclined to try using something other than YUM, though.  Having
read messages about yum removing one package resulting in the complete
removal of Gnome or KDE, etc...

Of course, you don't have to use the provided kernels, likewise for
other packages.  You could roll your own without any dependency on
SELinux.  Though that rather obviates the purpose for using a distro.
