Yes. See the discussion/documentation around XDG_RUNTIME_DIR . If you are using systemd/pam_systemd this already works today. The directory /run/user/<username> will be created on login via the pam module, be 700, and the XDG_RUNTIME_DIR variable will be exported in your environment pointing to that directory. I think pam_systemd should be usable on a non-systemd system too (untested).
