"SELinux isn't much protection against an attacker with root access!"

Incorrect - this is exactly what SELinux (mandatory access control) protects against. It describes which programs can access which files, even when they are running as root. It also tracks "how you you got here", so it can enforce things like "user logged on with physically attached keyboard and ran sudo bash to become root and so can disable SELinux".
