Probably could - the spec change would be minimal, basically just
change that the default address is


instead of just the latter.

Then again, maybe it would be better to just mandate that /var/run
always need to be on tmpfs and rw (I think Ubuntu does this already).
Then early user space can set it up as the very first thing and we
won't have to worry about the security problems I've raised elsewhere.
