Very bad idea imho, I'm strongly against it.
The point of /run is not to create a second /tmp, where everyone can write into.

daemons running as regular user should either put it's runtime files in $HOME or
$XDG_RUNTIME_DIR [1]. The latter is relatively new and I'd rather see us embrace
that in Debian and make sure it is setup properly.
