Yes, that's a good idea. Initially when posting this thread I thought
that there just had to be a trade-off between dropping CAP_SYS_ADMIN
(and making it more difficult to escape the container), and a user
inside the container DOSing the container by filling up /run.

But with your idea, I can at least separate /run/user from /run
itself (the same way mode=1777 /run/lock is a separate tmpfs already)
by just a simple static mount entry for the container.

Thanks for bringing this up!
