PA daemon "should" issue warning if XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set

From the XDG Base Dir Spec (v 0.7):
"If $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR is not set applications should fall back to a replacement directory with similar capabilities and print a warning message."
I understand that "should" clauses are not mandatory, but imo, it would be very helpful to have this particular warning issued, and to state explicitly the replacement directory that is being used instead. Even better would be to issue an informational message on every PA daemon startup that states the runtime directory. (The latter could perhaps be conditional on -v.)
