Aside from the other objections voiced that it abuses that namespace, I
also object to it because it inappropriately ties the required feature
(early availability of read-write space for data that doesn't persist
across reboots) to a particular implementation, instead of leaving the
admin free to structure the mounts in a way that's most appropriate for
the system.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
