Afaict from reading the thread this isn't true. /run moves _some_
non-configuration files out of the way, but it only works for files
whose contents may be lost at reboot and does not deal with
non-static configuration data.

If you want /etc/ to be mounted ro you'll still need to do your
homework. For example you'll need to use something like NIS for
authentication because otherwise users could not change their own
passwords (/etc/shadow) anymore.
