[Clip] Monolithic vs. Modular

I have been working with CLIP 3.1.3 and the selinux-policy-clip src rpm. I
wanted to work with the policy compiled in a modular format instead of
monolithic but noticed that the source rpm as provided on the website is
configured for monolithic building. I found selinux-policy-modular.spec on
the tresys website to build the selinux-policy-clip rpm as a modular
instance. I noticed in the modular spec file, it has selinux-policy listed
under Obsoletes. The selinux-policy package is not under Obsoletes for the
selinux-policy-monolithic.spec though. I don't understand why this
difference exists if the policies are the same (pull from the same source).
I am new to SELinux/CLIP so sorry if this is a trivial question.
Also, I am wondering why the default "build" of CLIP is monolithic instead
of modular. I thought it was easier to add to the policy as a modular
Any insight that you can provide is greatly appreciated.
