Having just read the Beta announcement (well done!) I think we need to
explain what some of these features are a little more for the main

I'm betting that only about 10% of people that care about databases
would know what SQL/MED is. Much better to say "Distributed Database
(Read-only)", or similar.

SE-Postgres isn't known to most people, and similarly, not everybody
has heard of SE-Linux or knows what its for.
How about "Generic Label Security, with integration to Security
Enhanced Linux (SELinux)"

Doesn't need to be more "marketingy" just more descriptive, fewer acronyms.
