Hmm, on whose behalf are you making this decision?

LSB people will want to avoid using /cgroup, but I think a lot of
admins will likely prefer /cgroup (as I do). On my systems I
always use /cgroup, but would be more likely to use /mnt/cgroup
over /dev/cgroup.

lxc (at rightfully takes the cgroupfs from wherever it
happens to be mounted. Do you really need a mountpoint decided?

If you do, then while I DETEST the extra typing, I think
/sys/kernel/cgroup makes most sense, since that's where you find
debugfs and securityfs.
