(FHS 2.2, Section 2, Paragraph 2) /etc/volatile breaks that. /run doesn't. With /run, we can finally have an /etc which is actually all static configuration data. Another suggestion, I think, was /dev/shm...  Interestingly, Table 2.1 lists /etc as possibly static, which is (currently) self-contradictory.
