He is not and he doesn't have to know it. I have been using for couple 
of years /tmp on tmpfs, just with

tmpfs    /tmp    tmpfs   defaults,nosuid,nodev 0 0

and aside from a situation when I tried to save couple of giga large 
move file there (which got my system to an interesting state of system 
load 25 before it finally decided that there is not enough space on 
/tmp) I have never encounter any issues. Notice how weird requirements 
Mirek did on the system.
