This applies not only to dedicated hosting but shared hosting as well

ISP's its a complete hinderance and nuisance, but since we have ceased use

I know several large ISP's who use SELinux extensively.

Thats their choice, its the choice of many not to go near it because they have been bitten before, 8/10 I know who have used it have cursed it and therego no longer touch it.

So why is it mandaroty to install it, its bloatware, I mean you dont install
bind, apache, mysql and christ knows whatever else on a server (or desktop
for that matter) if you have no intentions of running or using that service, so its much the same situation.
