Incidentially, I just sent a mail proposing this as a release goal.

It's a bit of an abuse of the /lib namespace.  It also outlines a plan
for how to get rid of /var/run and /var/lock long-term, something I
don't believe /lib/init/rw ever tried to.  It was just somewhere to
stuff random early data.
