I think this is the key paragraph here, as well as Thomas' (^H^H Hood's) main point.
Maybe the justification should just be "Things that ended up in etc for historic
reasons but which should be in something ending in run".
As Thomas and yourself have pointed out, it's a interim solution and compromise.
One might add that it's probably a better starting point to do start FHS
lobbying for /run than the present situation by clearly pointing out the scope
and proving feasibility.
