Ok, up again, nuked a pint of coffee but its too hot yet.

I commented that line 16 in audit.rules, and it moved the error to line 17, so 
I commented that one too.

Step & repeat until there is only one active line in the file, line 15.

Now it seems to me that those rules were there for a reason, and to have to 
comment all but the first one out to get rid of the error:
---------
[[email protected] audit]# service auditd restart

Starting auditd:                                           [  OK  ]
Error sending add rule data request (Unknown error 524)
There was an error in line 27 of /etc/audit/audit.rules
[[email protected] audit]# vim audit.rules
[[email protected] audit]# service auditd restart
Stopping auditd:                                           [  OK  ]
Starting auditd:                                           [  OK  ]
----------
isn't the real problem, so what do the experts here think?

SELinux is running in permissive mode, and seems to be logging res=success for 
everything so far, so it may be possible to set it to targeted.  I figured if 
I tried it on a known, fully working system, that would be a hell of a lot 
more accurate test than trying to make it work on a fresh install, which 
forced me to disable it months ago.

Would it have logged res=denied for anything if set to permissive?
