I have no opinion on whether the selinux developers should have two
variables with two states or change to one with three, as long as
their/its use is clearly documented.

The only reason that I pointed out that setting these two selinux
variables simultaneously (and two other things that I've now
forgotten) didn't make sense is that the OP reported that his
"kernel..." line was deemed too long by dracut/anaconda.
