Libvirt already allows the app defining the container config to
set private mounts for any directory including /run and /var.

If an admin or app wants to run systemd inside a container, it is
their responsibility to ensure they setup the filesystem in a
suitable manner. Libvirt is not going to enforce use of a private
/run or /var, since that's a policy decision for a specific
use case.
