Well, hughesjr, I'm using the *default* meaning of "default":
You'll get SELinux "on" on install if you don't take action to select it off.

Automagic partitioning is also default, you have to take action to get into DiskDruid.

I disagree ... to me enabled by default would be like the core and base
default packages .... they are turned on, and one can not turn them off.
They are enabled by default, whether you need them or not.

SELinux would be enabled by default if it were turned on that way.
