Good idea.

I made read-only (woody based) IPsec gateway/router which boots from
USB pen drive. Instead of sysvinit I installed runit.

/var is mounted on tmpfs (rw) and one script create /var/run and
needed subdirectories.

Every daemon on that machine (racoon, sshd, ntpd and socklog) have
their own directory under /var/run
