And this is eactly the issue. Apps have to be configured accordingly.

e.g. to use /var/tmp where some semblance of persistence and storage
space is required, but /tmp for all other issues.

This is a discussion for later so I won't go into the ins and outs of
the feature suggestion, but suffice to say nothing is decided and
nothing should be static (including your own use of /tmp just now).
Proposals have to be evaluated on their own merit.
