What's wrong with just a "make check" target in refpolicy ?
There is major limitation with this: reboot and/or restarting of
services required. In the simple solution that I was thinking of, this
limitation could be documented and printed out: echo $limitation ; sleep
10 ; carry out basic sanity checks.
It's still better than nothing. And the idea of developing more advanced
tests with time sounds quite attractive to me.

Personally I would never do that outside of my home because I would not
be able to afford the risk of loosing something at work. Filtering based
on message content and other patterns sounds more reliable to me. And
they are not proprietary/commercial solutions: I have control over that.
