This is probably doomed to failure, because the targeted policy cuts a *lot*
of corners because it's not making any realistic attempt to protect legitimate
system users/types from each other.  You really need to start with the 'strict'
policy - that has support for separating users.

(Basically, in the 'targeted' policy, so many things will treat
'user_u:object_r:unconfined_t' and 'system_u:object_r:unconfined_t' as being
equivalent that you're not going to get anywhere useful....)
