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 . The latter is relatively new and I'd rather see us embrace
that in Debian and make sure it is setup properly.
Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
