Actually /var/lib/plymouth or something. However
- /var might be read-only so you need to gracefully handle errors
- /var might be mounted pretty late in the boot process
So maybe /etc isn't such a bad place after all; IIRC it's guaranteed to
be on the root file system anyway.
If /var's read-only, /etc is almost certainly read-only as well. Outside
of that, once you get to the end of the plymouth run, /var will be mounted.
