Just a confirmation - this is a 'works for me' on a Fedora -devel system
synced up to yesterday's tree - the policy change was in the RPM already,
had to make the one-line hack to add the restorecon to rc.sysinit.

Am running fine with /tmp on a tmpfs - so now /tmp gets auto-cleaned at
each reboot (it's a laptop, so that's a fairly frequent occurrence - somehow,
"suspend" just doesn't do it for me).  Now if I were really paranoid, I'd
enable encrypted swap... :)
