Run auditd as non-root user?

Can the audit daemon (auditd) be run by a non-root user? I'd like to create a special user who only run the audit daemon. Is that possible?

The only reason Auditd exists is to ship kernel messages to /var/log/audit/. W/o running the daemon AVC messages end up in /var/log/messages. I wonder for what compelling reason(s) you would want to make it run under a different account in the first place?..
