IMHO nothing is wrong with /var/run; the problematic directory is
/var/heimdal: it should be /var/_lib_/heimdal according to the FHS.

Making /var/run also configurable (say, to allow using a subdirectory
under /var/run) may help if someone wants to run Heimdal services as a
non-root user or just wants to have /var/run more organized, but it is
not essential.
