I'm aware of runit, in fact it's my init and my x11 login session.

What we don't have is a convention; my "make install" can't rely on
runsvdir running in /service, /etc/service, /var/service, /run/service,
or any other million places I've seen it deployed; also there is no
convention like $HOME/service, or /var/spool/runit/$USER/service or
whatever, for per-user services.
