I think at very least you can propose it for meta-oe if not or-core.
I think core libcap-ng recipe belongs in a common layer and not maintained in two places.

But I also wonder why meta-selinux is not a sub-layer under
meta-selinux existed first... no other reason.

The last time I looked at meta-security (well over a year ago), it
wasn't terribly useful.
Well when a security package like 'snort' and maybe others are in other locations, I can see why meta-security won't be very useful.

It was just a random collection of
security-like packages, some worked, some didn't.
Hopefully that will change.

If it has grown since then to be more of a cohesive set of packages,
then meta-selinux being part of it may make sense.
