"No class of applications", you say?

/var/run being on a tmpfs makes sense (if we crash, then it's okay, they're not running anymore).

Another more practical one is my browser cache. If it got blown away on every reboot, I wouldn't really mind, and I would actually be pretty angry if my browser started doing fsync on every little thing (hmm, where have I heard this?).
