Restricted how?  The fallback types have the resource_type attribute.

Neverallow rules are actually not present in the binary policy; they act as
compile-time assertions in the policy build.

This prevents using delegate_devices without allowing access to unlabeled
devices.  If you think this should be a macro, I would suggest making a new
one named something like "delegate_unlabeled_devices".
