I think we should remember that LFS is *only* designed to show you how
to build a Linux system from sources. Adding security to the LFS book
would just add confusing complexity to what is now a complex enough
process and make the book that much larger.
A much better idea would be a new project called S(B)LFS which gives
details on how to secure your LFS and BLFS systems.
