The two measures aren't mutually exclusive.

Is it a lot of work to implement /run?  If it is decided
that the idea is sound, then maintainers can just start
moving their run-time state files under /run.  Also,
somewhere must be documented the new requirement that
/run must be rw, local, and persistent-until-reboot --
whether it be a directory on the root filesystem or a
tmpfs or whatever.  Then there is getting the FHS
changed; that will be the most work.
