RFC on Cloud Images: Make /tmp a tmpfs

Is it just me, or did the RFC asks about cloud-images alone, and we
are diverging to discussing all the things, and all the form factors,
and all the installation types.

Certainly it should be easy to use tmp on tpmfs with cloud-images,
which i would presume would have a cloud-init on/off toggle,
irrespective of the default.
And, e.g. imho the default should be off for cloud-images as pointed
out earlier. But others are advocating otherwise.

Dustin stats are for both physical and virtual machines... not sure
how that helps to make a decision for cloud-images in isolation. Given
that they are used quite differently.
