  No, but you'll notice when multiple system start fighting over control for
/dev/log, /dev/gpmdata, and other generated /dev nodes.

  There is no reason for storing anything in those directories permenanly? 
And these also don't appreciate being shared.
  Note: ramfs != ext2 on a ramdisk.  It only uses the memory it actually
needs.  So that < 50k of data in my (loaded) /var/run doesn't take 4M.
Simple, no?
