--- Comment #1 from Damien Miller <djm at mindrot.org>  ---
I just added this comment to bug #1789, I think it applies here too:

> Isn't the solution for SELinux rules breaking /tmp to fix the SELinux 
> rules? Abstract sockets look like a complete trainwreck waiting to 
> happen: a brand new, completely unstructured but shared namespace, with 
> zero intrinsic security protections (not even filesystem permissions) 
> where every consumer application must implement security controls 
> correctly, rather than letting the kernel do it.
> At the very least, I think we will wait a while before rushing to add 
> support for this to OpenSSH.
