I remember discussing this with the FHS maintainer; that section was
intended to codify existing practices such as these:
drwxr-xr-x 2 mail mail 1024 Jan 2 09:48 /var/run/exim/
drwxr-xr-x 2 identd nogroup 1024 Sep 4 16:04 /var/run/identd/
...rather than to suggest a /var/run subdirectory for each login user
(whatever the merits or otherwise of that idea).
I expect I still have the relevant email somewhere.
