That's a very good point; probably all of these sockets will end up in /run 
rather than /var (as they once did).  Maybe the issues I'm seeing after boot 
are not related to sockets being masked as I assumed.  I have no idea what 
else it could be, though.

I've got the unit ordered before all the sockets, but NFS is still behaving 
badly (losing visibility of /home and other mounts), and it works fine if the 
proper NFS /var is not mounted at all and the /var from the NFS root is used 
(but then it's not using the right /var).

Any idea if systemd does something else in /var in very early boot?
