system-wide /tmp is necessary for things like this

Think about if you home directory were mounted via NFS, AFS, GFS - pick shared filesystem of your choice, and you were to use screen on multiple machines. You'd have sockets that are busted, and a mighty long list in screen -ls. In *your* situation, $HOME/tmp might be appropriate, however in a large number of environments it would not be.

A little OT for this post, though :). I *do* agree with daemons moving stuff out, it's not the Right Place(TM)
