Do we really need it that urgently before /var is mounted? Can't we reload whatever is using it after /var becomes available? Isn't this also state which is continually adjusted and rewritten, i.e. is system state rather than static configuration? > > Don't have that.

Can't dynamically added entried be added to /var/lib/wrap/hosts.* (for example) and then libwrap can be patched to read both locations, allowing for static configuration in /etc, and dynamic added/removed under /var. -- .''`.
