I agree that the UX is bad, and I think that's because they were wearing heavily SELinux-tinted glasses when they designed it. As an example, even if you correctly expanded `chcon` to "change context" the name of the command itself tells you nothing about it being SELinux related. In contrast, `aa-enforce` and friends hint that they're all AppArmor commands. (This is more useful when trying to remember the name of the command you typed a few months ago.)

This is of course difficult to get right - one would need to be aware of what everything does detail, but still know what it would be like to use it with no prior knowledge.
