Firstly if you care this much *stop* having shared writable directories. We have namespaces, you don't need them. You can give every user their own /tmp etc. The rest of this only make sense on a per application and directory basis because there are valid use cases, and that means it wants to be part of an existing LSM security module where you've got the context required and you can attach it to a specific directory and/or process.
