Or /boot/var, perhaps (variable data, available at boot time). The problem with this is that /boot is a separate mountpoint, which could really be anywhere, even on the network in odd cases. It's also easier to make /boot read-only than / on existing Debian systems -- nothing but lilo and dpkg write into /boot at present. "/etc/var" or perhaps "/lib/var" could be made to work, without running the risk of breaking existing setups.
