/lib is no more appropriate than /sbin.  That it is already overloaded
in the FHS to mean libraries, executables and data does not excuse
putting, effectively, temporary files there.

If anything, /etc/run, since /etc used to be the preferred dumping
ground for things which have now moved to /dev/shm (ick) and /run.
