I'd like to second this.  There is should be no reason that a system 
should not be able to just create /var dynamicly at boot type (mfs).
Especially in a workstation style environment, remote syslogs and
remote mail stores reduce whats needed to be kept around.  As far as
recover, well.. yes, its a minor inconvience,  but one should be saving 
periodically anyway.
