You have a good point, there.  It would have to be kept simple.  It could work 
as a small icon, by just drawing only a small part, such as only 2 
rooms with short paths and let the rest "fade out" into the "distance" (i.e., 
let further walls be truncated).

I realized while I was suggesting it that this could easily become too 
complicated to work well for an icon type logo. Still, I put the idea out 
there, we just have to suppress our tendency to want to see the whole big 
picture at once and, instead, just zoom in to show only enough to clearly see 
that which sets SELinux apart (pun intended).
