It seems that going to a colord_role() would be the way to go.  There 
already is a colord_dbus_chat($1_t) in userdomain.if, so you could put 
those dbus rules plus the rules to address the fds together.

I agree the xdg_read_data_files() is somewhat broad, but it seems like 
xdg_data_t files aren't sensitive.  Maybe that's just how it is on 
system?  I don't feel strongly on this.
