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.
yes meta-oe is kind of extended common layer besides oe-core, if it
can be proven that we can drop libpcap and replace its use completely
with libpcap-ng you might have a better case to include it in oe-core,

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.
