If they need more than a tmp file handle with a clear contract; i.e.
something like pseudo temporarly storage with semantics specific to their
application; then they'd better create an *application* level config or
policy for that; with clearly documented requirements (such as max size,
livetime, mostly read or mostly write permissions, cleanup (or not) on
exit of the application or reboot, etc).
