"Wrong" in general has been used here as a generic excuse to "do
what's best for the user, and they'd better like it because they're
wrong if they don't do what we tell them".
IMHO *telling* the user how to manage /tmp is wrong, whichever side of
the argument you're on. *Asking* them how to manage it is the right
way. That was my point in that mail.
*I* want /tmp on disk. I still don't want someone else telling me I
have to do it that way.
