Hmmm..why not create a user_mount_t domain and transition to it from
unconfined_t, and let it write to user home directory types?  While
leaving mount_t alone.  Then you can define a type transition on
user_mount_t etc_t:file etc_runtime_t.  Relying on restorecond for
something that can be easily addressed via a type transition seems
