Proposal: /lib/init/rw

I would like to follow debian and add a tmpfs to /lib/init/rw , which would 
serve as a transition from initramfs to real root for files from daemons, which 
need to transition from initramfs, like mdmon, dmeventd, rpc.statd, etc.

FYI, /var is not an option, because it can be on a seperate partition.

Currently we use /dev/.initramfs, which is just a workaround, because /dev is 
already available.

What do you think?
