I don't use SELinux because it gets in my way far more than it every 
actually protects me from anything.

I'm sure there are systems where it absolutely is necessary, but I don't 
like to have stuff fail because I used mv instead of cp to install a 
certificate, for example.

For authoritative DNS I also do not use chroot but authoritative DNS is 
all those servers do, and I use zones signed externally via DNSSEC (no 
private keys on the server)
