Valdis just said that they have specific builds for different distributions 
and different versions of the various distributions.  As they already have 
such a variation, adding another simple thing such as restorecon is not 
asking a lot (IMHO).

Also if they would just use RPMs to deliver their software then many of these 
issues would get solved for them.
